WARNING: This is a test site!
We buy CORNCOBS and other biomass
This site is a platform for selling your corncobs (& other Biomass):
NB: For large suppliers or suppliers that will enter into long-term contracts, Cob.Trade™ will provide additional features, like selling biomass futures and scheduling (large-scale) collections at the farms/depots in accordance with your (biomass) harvesting schedules.
In most places (in Africa), the corncob is left in the field or is under utilised. Maize (Mealie) is one of Africa's staple diets and often grown with poor yields. The co-harvesting of the cobs provides additional revenue to the (emerging) farmers from a food by-product that is often wasted.
Agro-Biomass is expensive to transport over long distances. The Cob.Trade™ business model is based on the development of a local biomass trade for several regional converters (e.g. biorefineries). Agro-Biomass processing is a new economy with a vast potential, provided there is a (structured) feedstock supply. Learn more
DalinYebo has market access for the products and designed the agro-biomass processing facilities (based on a modernised 1922 process), which are 'shovel ready' and for which there are investors, provide the feedstock supply is secured. These rural biorefineries will have a very significant socioeconomic impact, because the exploitation of this economy is a collaborative effort between commercial and emerging farmers, who will be able share in the profits.

A: Initially, we are developing Cob.Trade™ in regions where there is scope for rapid implementation. We need access to a supply of min. 10,000 tpa of corncob or similar biomass, within 50km radius. These regions must have scope for small-scale grower developments, so as to increase the biomass to well over 25,000 tpa within 3 years.
NB: The buyers (the biomass processing hub investors) require the farmers to make long-term supply commitments.
