Mattias Ohlson

Co-founder and CEO, Emerging Cooking Solutions

Mattias Ohlson, Co-founder and CEO of Emerging Cooking Solutions (SupaMoto) has lived in Zambia since 2013, running the company together with his co-founder and wife Marion Peterson. Since then, they have relentlessly pursued the original idea of replacing charcoal with biomass pellets. To do this, they operate one of Africa’s larger, running wood pellet factories and last-mile distribution in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.

Mattias has over the past years spearheaded development of a new type of biomass gasification stove (“SupaMoto stove”), using sensors and software control. It was recently tested at Aprovechio Research Center with better results on all accounts (efficiency, emissions) likely than any other biomass stove tested. He has also lead the development of an IoT (Internet of Things) platform, connecting the stoves to Internet, now running for 1.5 years, which to date has collected over 25 million records. This will soon lead to highest quality carbon credits based on digital MRV (Measurement, Reporting, Verification) and real rather than estimated usage.

Blockchain: The Key to Quick, Accurate, and Trusted Clean Cooking Carbon Credits?

Today, it can take up to two years for certification standards to issue high quality, trusted carbon credits. These long payment timelines can cause cash flow issues for the clean cooking companies supplying the carbon credits and waiting on the associated revenues, but on the demand-side, buyers need external validation that the carbon credits that they purchase are acceptable. Today’s verification processes are time consuming and costly, because they rely on self-reported data from clean cooking companies that need to be scrutinized by independent human experts. Blockchain-based issuance of carbon credits could drastically shorten the time needed for carbon program results verification, and in doing so, could speed up the growth of the clean cooking sector.

This session will allow the audience to learn of the latest blockchain developments in clean cooking from sector experts, provide a platform to share experiences on using blockchain technology in clean cooking, and explore the potential for digital contract management using a distributed ledger.
