  1. Hi. Can you share please your contact information (e-mail) ?
    I have an another version of your Startup. Potentially it could be most energy effective for individual users.

    1. Hello! Here is my contact information:

  2. Are you concerned that the cost of leaf collection and transportation, plus the manufacturing costs, might make it difficult to generate a profit from what is likely a low cost, low margin product?

    1. Yes, we are concerned about the full cost of the manufacturing process. In comparison with briquettes made of wood sawdust, which require the same expenses: wood collection, transportation, shredding, and manufacturing, proposed in our project material is still cheaper than wood. Seasonal excess of leaves will make profit on the amount of the product overweight the cost. Additionally, our product is eco-friendly.
