Gomotsegang Consultancy

Gometsegang consultancy is an organisation which provides professional services in terms of environmental management and public health. This organisation was established by Dr. Gometsegang Fred Molelekwa in 2003.


The poorest households in South Africa frequently use fuel briquettes to cover their energy and heating needs. These briquettes are highly polluting considering their composition. The solution proposed by Gometsegang consultancy is to create briquettes based on organic and low-cost materiels and sell them at an interesting price. Their idea is to recover the waste of invasive plants such as poplar, eucalyptus, wild pins and transform them to briquettes by including wood shavings that are recycled too. These briquettes would pollute less and emit less smoke.

About the project

The main objective is to participate to the elaboration of the business strategy and marketing plan of the briquettes. More specific objectives are to create a marketing plan adapted to the region of Pretoria, to get in touch with the different communities, to consider various suppliers, optimal production quantities and storage and to follow  a theoretical preparation based on scientific literature and a close collaboration with Gometsegang consultancy.


As with all our projects, the first step of the project will be the formation of a multidisciplinary team of excellent and highly motivated students. The students will work on the project in Belgium over the academic year and spend around 6 weeks in South Africa for the last phase of their project.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
