Welcome to Namibia Biomass Industry Group!

The Namibia Biomass Industry Group (N-BiG) was established in 2015 as a non-profit industry association with the vision of shaping the future of bioenergy and bio-based products in Namibia. N-BiG represents a wide range of members from private sector and academic and research institutions across the Namibian bush-biomass sector.  We drive innovation and technology development and offer technical expertise on biomass value chains.  Part of our mandate is to explore market opportunities and promote industry diversification.
