INTRODUCTION The hypothesis for our project is to create a charcoal that have less soot and smoke.

So, if we have less soot and smoke, we can reduce the air pollution. We also can reduce the banana peel that has been thrown as rubbish. Nowadays, in our country we have a lot of pollution especially air pollution. The causes of the air pollution come from vehicle, combustion, open burning and so on. Air pollution is a significant risk factor for multiple health conditions including respiratory infections, heart disease, and lung cancer, according to the WHO. The health effects caused by air pollution may include difficulty in breathing, wheezing, coughing, asthma and aggravation of existing respiratory and cardiac conditions. These effects can result in increased medication use, increased doctor or emergency room visits, more hospital admissions and premature death. The human health effects of poor air quality are far reaching, but principally affect the body's respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. The founder of Bakyala Tweyune women’s group has innovated a new method of alternative fuel by turning banana peelings into charcoal briquettes. In the beginning some women feared to join the groups because their husbands did not approve of the venture. But after realizing the benefits of the technology, men have come in to help the women especially in marketing banachakol. From this project we are innovated the banana to charcoal using banana peel and the wood dust. Our limit for this project is we did not have time to do the project. This is because we have a lot of school works to do. We also have limit of device and apparatus to do the project in school such as blender and oven. In Oxford dictionary, banana mean a long curved fruit which grows in clusters and has soft pulpy flesh and yellow skin when ripe:a bunch of banana. Charcoal mean a porous black solid, consisting of an amorphous form of carbon, obtained as a residue when wood, bone, or other organic matter is heated in the absence of air.

briquettes of charcoal used for barbecuing: lamb grilled on charcoal  charcoal used for drawing: a selection of works in pencil and charcoal with a thick charcoal he traced out the line of the front

DISCUSSION CONCLUSION BIBLIOGRAPHY 1. We have to mix more banana peels than wood dust. a dark grey colour: charcoal cord trousers METHODOLOGY: We invented this charcoal from banana peel to briquette of charcoal. There is some of the ingredient that we use. Ingredient: 1. After the banana to charcoal dry off.  a drawing made with charcoal. After we slice the banana peels. After that we cut it into smaller pieces. Banana peel 2.farmradio. The banana sap help tighten the mixing. we test it whether the banana charcoal produce less smoke and soot. we have to dry it in the oven or dry it under the sun until the sap of the banana . For the final. Just put one hand of wood dust and three hands of banana peels. In banana peel top briquette. we have to mix it with wood dust. http://www. we reduce the wood dust so that the banana charcoal can produce less smoke to reduce the air pollution. Here we use the wood dust. we have to slice first the banana peels into smaller parts. If there are more smoke and soot. Wood dust First. they use sand and dust.

thank you for coming to share with us this new technology. because we are going to talk about how banana peelings can be used to make charcoal briquettes. Host: So banana peelings have many different uses. Can you describe for our listeners how to make charcoal briquettes from the banana peels? What materials are needed? Guest: You will need one-half basin full of fresh banana peelings. you will be interested in our program today. a community worker from Bakyala Tweyune. oxforddictionaries. http://www. a quarter basin of charcoal dust. Our guest today is Rita Ashaba. I grow bananas and besides using the peelings as animal feed for my goats and for manure. the charcoal dust and the sand. This technology started in Lungujja near Kampala . Guest: You’re APENDIKS: Interview of the founder of banana peels to charcoal SOUND EFFECTS (PICK AXE CHOPPING FIREWOOD). I now use them to make charcoal briquettes. Good evening listeners. then mix the three ingredients together – the banana peelings. which has made me a constant user and promoter of the product. the founder of Bakyala Tweyune women’s group. where a woman named Namusoke Immaculate. Rita. banana peelings. Host: How did you adopt the technology of banana peeling briquettes? Guest: I have known the technology of banana peeling briquettes for five years.2. Once the banana peelings are chopped. This is a technology that will save many trees. Host: Are these in equal amounts? Guest: No. has innovated a new method of alternative fuel by turning banana peelings into charcoal 3. approximately half of the mixture. what do I do? Guest: First you have to chop the fresh banana peelings into small pieces. Host: Okay. the banana peelings should be more. Host: If you grow bananas in any part of the world. Once I have these things together. Guest: .scribd. and a quarter basin of fine sand. so we are mixing these three things together. Host: Okay. Charcoal dust and sand should each be a quarter of the quantity of the peelings. charcoal dust and sand.

One more thing. Host: Listeners before we hear about the advantages of using banachakol. The sap in the banana peelings will tie up the sand and charcoal dust. Rita what is the advantage of using the banana peel charcoal briquettes compared to using other forms of fuel? Guest: If you live in a banana growing area. I bet it does not take long to dry does it? Guest: The drying takes a short time. MUSIC BREAK Host: We’re back with our guest who has been talking about how to make banana peel charcoal briquettes. it will be easy for you to get the banana peelings. Guest: Yes. one of which is that their meals are on time. to them it is like playing. That’s one of the benefits. The other things you need are simply sand and charcoal dust. Host: From your experience in working with rural women how has the technology of using banachakol changed the lives of some users? Guest: Because of banachakol women now have more time with their children at home. Certainly everything that is about women concerns men. Host: Have you involved men in this new technology? Guest: In the beginning some women feared to join the groups because their husbands did not approve of the venture. they have started self-help projects like zero grazing. let’s have a music break. For the many women groups I interact with.That’s right. mushroom farming and tailoring. We also hope to build a larger drying area and of course we want to start employing people to sort banana peelings from garbage in areas where they are thrown. You do NOT need a special fireplace to burn this charcoal. men have come in to help the women especially in marketing banachakol. Host: That sounds simple and interesting. The charcoal burns for a long time. They are put under the sun and are dried. All these things are found close to home. . Then you make the briquettes of a suitable size. So that means one does not use a lot of it when cooking. In most cases I ask my children to help and because of the ease. which means more care. Besides much less smoke is produced so the cooking place is cleaner and safer. Host: And I understand that the procedure of making the briquettes is also easy. of course depending on the weather. Host: How is the demand for banachakol so far? Guest: Demand is rising and we hope to purchase equipment to crush the peelings so that it is even easier. But after realizing the benefits of the technology. Then they are are ready for use just like that. so women do not have to move long distances away from home in search for fuel.

thank you for joining us today. . I am grateful to Rita our guest who has told us a lot about the banachakol. Dear listeners that brings us to the end of our program about conserving our environment. a new source of fuel for cooking. Until next time cheers and have a good evening.Host: Rita.
