3:42 am
and above all what's the simplest way to reach them. the 1st question was whether or not homeless youngsters have smartphones and of course many do young people who live on the streets often see their phones as the final link to friends or home and view them as the most valuable possession that it's not just a status symbol it's a multi-functional device that also provides a flashlight for music and so on it is. a smartphone based service can help many people there are some 237000 homeless in germany of those an estimated 19008 percent children or young people under the age of 18. people like maria baca she now lives in a small hostel run by karuna giving her the opportunity to lead a normal life again. she has no idea how things would have worked out without the

3:49 am
energy source is from the local area. the rolling landscape of character county comes to life. as far as the eye can see. very well here. this is kenya's most important. has a plantation here he's one of 600000 smallholder farmers who work with the development. t. has provided his family with a good living he is the best source of income the main source of income. is. completed and by.
3:50 am
that he from his farm is processed just a few kilometers away and attend a sonic factory which is also affiliated with k.t. . the workers 1st separate the tea leaves into equally sized batches afterwards they're dried in a process that takes several steps. and the drying process requires boilers like these they consume a great deal of firewood. most of this wood comes from the factories own plantation . trees are growing scarce in the region 2 years ago the government imposed a moratorium on logging in public forests. that's also why the factory uses burkhead fiber sugarcane residue
3:51 am
a number of countries have begun exploring this biomass also called by god as a promising source of energy. because it's to do with storage space and it's also very easy to transport. and from units we told. them. that the factory has already been able to replace one 5th of its what consumption with for cats. they're hoping to increase that amount ideally making firewood unnecessary. but as c.e.o. diaz chavez has visited several t. factories. she's having a project to investigate whether switching to pick cats would make tea production more sustainable. that entails assessing the various processing steps such as fermentation as well as analyzing the entire production chain. how much raw material and how much energy is consumed to obtain the final product.
3:52 am
per susman draws and 24 criteria that researchers developed a number of years ago. we look at not just at the environmental aspect we're looking also for the social economic and even afford the large that is on governance or policy and regulations so we consider this is also part of the whole sustainability assets. this is suspect has to be done for the tea production and also for the bearcats. that's why the renewable energy specialist is visiting this factory. sugarcane by products are often simply dumped at the roadside where they rot and emit the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide and methane. but here they're turned into a valuable resource. the same language circular economy
3:53 am
so this is what we want to promote with bio energy and by the quantum how you can really have a rounded cycle for the biomass. huge amounts of this waste are produced during sugar production 100 tons of waste can be turned into roughly 45 tons of pockets. 1st the sugar cane back us has to be dried and shredded. and then it's molded into cats under high pressure. since they're made out of a waste product no additional land has to be put under cultivation that's a key indicator for sustainability. transportation emissions are also taken into account the way they are working is really to considered radius where they can they can leave their debris get chaffed long as they are within the 102 maps even 200
3:54 am
kilometers is still it is a range that the emissions are not too high for transport. in this case the raw material doesn't have far to travel. a large sugarcane mill is located just a few kilometers from the bearcat factory. the workers dry some of the sugarcane back us by hand that also provides a regular source of income. one of the sustainability criteria takes job creation into account and also the extent to which women benefit the production of sugarcane briquettes is now an emerging industry here. at any one very we have about 80 to 90 ladies drying the work progress for haas so you can see already have created a job of about 180 to 200 people a month. although the bearcats offer many benefits only a few factories are using them they don't have the necessary experience and training. and that's why the top a sonic t.
3:55 am
factory is conducting training sessions workers from other companies come here to learn how to best combine bearcats and work so as not to overload their boilers and to phase out firewood as much as possible. that would help preserve the remaining woodlands and protect biodiversity it would also benefit the tea plantations and the farmers. farmers who are affiliated with katie a like is a a keep it cure we might soon be able to profit in a different way to. when they used to be. the company. and this is money and the money saved goes to the promise. last year the price of tea fell on the world market. to farmers in kenya every cent counts.
