UCT is looking to establish
three small Benzoliv Processing plants in Malawi, Tanzania
and Uganda before we embark on our major commercial project
on the 26,000 hectares of land in DR Congo.

STEP 1- Harvesting:
Benzoliv can be grown intensively with no irrigation
and small amounts of fertilizer. Harvesting the leaves every
75 days—four crops in a year with around 100 tons of
green matter per hectare the first year, and 57 tons per hectare
the second year.
If however the Benzoliv plantation is irrigated
and fertilized harvesting can be achieved every 35 days—nine
crops per year—with a total yield of 650 tons of green
matter per hectare. This yield can be consistent from the
same plants for seven years.
Benefits of Sawyer PointOne filtration:
The Benzoliv leaves are
transported to the Processing Plant where they are first
washed in large buckets or pots in well or catchment water.
- The second wash is done in Sawyer
PointOne filtered water. This is the fastest, easiest
and most cost efficient way to get potable water.
Up to 500 gallons of potable water a day,
cleaner than US bottled water anywhere in the world!
