Retort Project
Over the past couple of years, the NCA has been involved in looking into new/improved charcoal production technology. During this year we started testing a couple of retorts and compared them to the traditional Namibian drum kiln. The retort technology still has to cover some ground before it will be able to replace the Namibian drum kiln. 

Testing Site
The charcoal testing site! 

The NCA rented the site from
Mr W Dieckmann. The prime location (close to the entrance of Otjiwarongo) led to many interactions with charcoal producers and interested parties. 

Study Tour on Industrial Biomass Parks (Germany, Belgium)

The Bush Control and Biomass Utilisation project facilitated a study tour to Germany / Belgium based biomass hubs (biomass industrial parks) to showcase an international development perspective. 

Impacts of bush encroachment on groundwater recharge.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)
2018 has been a year of growth for FSC in Namibia. The certified forest area has grown by 56% to 373 960 hectares. The National Forest Stewardship Standard process was successful with stakeholders engaged over the last 12 months in its development. FSC Southern Africa and the Standard Development Group in Namibia thanks all stakeholders for their interest and continued support.
