The BioEnergy Zones will produce renewable energy through elite biofuel trees developed by VayuGrid and deliver a triple net social, environmental, and economic benefit to Haiti.

The zones will be developed in non-arable land across Haiti to supply biodiesel, cooking briquettes, and high-protein animal feed. Social benefits will be realized through jobs and economic opportunities for the communities servicing the BioEnergy Zones; environmental benefits via renewable energy and reduction of deforestation through biofuels, and economic benefits by way of an agriculture financial model that is sustainable without government subsidies.

Sonamar S. A., based in Haiti, has an agreement with the Energy Ministry in Haiti for development of energy crops and has access to large tracks of barren land. As the local execution partner, Sonamar will work with local communities to develop the services-based ecosystem around BioEnergy Zones, creating long term opportunities for jobs and income within the communities.

"We see great benefit in developing a high yielding crop that not only produces clean energy, but will also supply the cooking fuel, to significantly reduce the large scale deforestation across Haiti," said Alix Douyon, president of Sonamar S. A.

"The environmental benefits of building back the environment while creating the much needed jobs will be a game changer for Haiti," expressed Stephany M Sirius, vice president of International Business Development for Sonamar S.A.
