Cashew Project

A sustainable supply chain from farmer to consumer

In Vietnam we are currently creating a stable production of cashew products, a sustainable supply chain from farmer to consumer and reuse residual flows like Cashew Nut Shells and Cashew Nut Shell Liquid. With the support of both the Dutch and Vietnamese Government we transfer knowledge, create price stability, and strengthen the power of farmers collectives.

Amélie European Sales Gateway

In cooperation with the European consulate of Vietnam in Brussels, we bring together Vietnamese suppliers of sustainable agricultural products in a sales consortium to export their products via our logistics partners to Europe.

Circular Economy

Cashew Nut Shell Liquid
From the stable production of cashew products, with the use of own patented technologies, MCE refines Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL), which can be distilled and used to create epoxy resin and phenol resin and ultimately used as heatpowerplant and vessel fuel. The refined CNSL serves both Vietnam and the international markets.

Pellets from Cashew and CNSL production residuals
In a joint venture with An Viet Phat Energy, MCE also makes pellets from the waste wood of the cashew trees and from the cashew nuts shells after extraction.

Sustainable Energy from Residual Flows
