We are

We are MCE. Our ambition is to successfully grow a socially responsible business. Work with sustainable products, help local farmers in Vietnam, and stimulate local economy.

With offices in The Netherlands and Vietnam, we enable businesses and governments to accelerate profitable investments in sustainable initiatives, while caring for the next generations.

Ecological and social interests create a great future for next generations

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.

Carbon Credits

In support of its vision, MCE collaborates in many carbon offset  initiatives, wich are crucial for a greener and more sustainable world as we address climate change to build a better future for next generations.

Make our world a better place for next generations

Today, businesses grapple with the challenge of balancing  economic objectives alongside environmental stewardship and community service.
Effective climate action commences with establishing science-based reduction targets and enhancing in-house GHG reductions. Nevertheless, despite these
endeavors, certain emissions persist due to technological and economic constraints.

Scope 3 emissions, comprising 70% of corporate emissions, present a significant challenge due to limited control over suppliers and customers. To tackle this issue, many companies adopt voluntary carbon reduction and removal projects, known as ‘Beyond Value Chain Mitigation’.

Research by Forest Trends suggests that companies utilizing verified emissions reductions or removals are more likely to set ambitious targets and reduce emissions faster than their counterparts. Achieving Net Zero emissions necessitates durable removal of greenhouse gases, requiring substantial financing through mechanisms like the Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM).

Carbon credits, originating from activities that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions, are essential in these efforts. Tradable in carbon markets, these credits empower companies to both offset emissions and invest in projects elsewhere, a process known as carbon inset. Over the past decade, the carbon market has experienced substantial growth, becoming a cornerstone for companies striving to achieve their sustainability goals.

At MCE, we are committed to fostering sustainability through our engagement in diverse projects, with a specific focus on Vietnam. Supported by local governments and an extensive partner network, we strive to advance sustainable initiatives. Through innovative financing and strategic partnerships, we contribute to the liquidity and maturity of the market.

Connect to SDGs

MCE has adopted the Sustainable Development Goals framework from the United Nations to give guidance on all business endeavours. We are in line with all 17 goals from focussing on sustainable and responsible production, to creating gateways to governments and NGO’s, to sponsoring quality infrastructure in rural villages. MCE focuses on:

Sharing knowledge and expertise and educate

Promoting sustainable economic growth

Achieving environmental sustainability through partnerships

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.

Chemically Recycled Plastic
Our partnership with Handerek Technologies allows us to offer the groundbreaking patented technology for recycling plastic waste to fuel, which enhances the circular economy. With an efficiency of 83-90% we are able to chemically recycle plastic waste and reduce CO2 emissions by not burning the plastic. It is a scalable and self-sufficient process that can be organised in local communities where the pollution causes the most problems.

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

Our Focus

High-tech knowledge, sustainability and social responsibility

Scientific Research
MCE and the Wageningen University and Research will setup an agricultural research center in Vietnam with a focus on improvement of the quality of life: nutrition, living environment and health.

MCE also takes part in the transition to a more sustainable world by helping companies reduce their CO2 emission and carbon footprint, provide multiple and cleaner solutions for energy, agriculture and logistics and comply with all relevant environmental legislation.

We focus on green energy production, that’s why we partnered with Turbulent. They were awarded for their groundbreaking and patented technology on eco-friendly vortex hydropower generation, that has no impact on the environment and supports local employment.

Social Responsibility
The business focus of MCE is on social responsibility, fair trade pricing, providing the Vietnamese farmers with long-term sustainable and economic development, improve local capacity and community health and adhere to human rights principles.

With our partners from Bioclear Earth, who have over 30 years of relevant experience in soil treatment, we ensure that the fertile soil is only treated in an eco-friendly way. No chemical or other harming treatments are used, so we can keep a clean and healthy soil.

Our Value

Knowledge availabilty

With tight links to research facilities and a lot of in-house knowledge and experience, MCE can support or provide advice in management, training or execution affairs.
