Madagascar is famous for its rich biodiversity, but deforestation due to the use of wood and charcoal and the expansion of agricultural land has become a serious problem. Tromso has delivered Grind Mills to an organization called AS PRO SAVA Association, which manufactures essential oils and other products in Madagascar in cooperation with local farmers and companies. The association is working on forest conservation by replacing the firewood used for the boilers used to refine essential oils with rice husk briquettes.
Madagascar is a major rice producer, and rice husks, the raw material for Momigalite, can be stably obtained. The Grind Mill is of great interest to Malagasy government officials because it can turn rice husks, which were originally disposed of as waste, into fuel, thereby preventing deforestation.
At the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD 7) held in Yokohama, Japan, in August 2019, President Rajoelina and First Lady Mealey of Madagascar visited the Tromso booth and expressed their strong desire to introduce Grind Mills to Madagascar.
