Decentralized Fuel ATM with KOKO Canister interlock

Investor ResourcesDecentralized Fuel ATM with KOKO Canister interlock
What is it?
  • KOKO has created a solution that tackles the problem of getting an aspirational, clean cooking fuel from regional filling stations to local shops that sell fast moving consumer goods.
  • KOKO Fuel ATMs are installed in local shops within cities, where customers can go to get their fuel.
  • Customers bring their KOKO refill bottle and select the amount of fuel they wish to buy from the KOKO Fuel ATM, which then dispenses the selected volume of fuel into the customer’s KOKO refill bottle.
  • KOKO Fuel ATMs are replenished by KOKO Fuel Trucks that bring bioethanol from local bunker storage.
  • IOT technology ensures that supplies in KOKO Fuel ATMs are optimized and never run out of fuel.
