Documentary highlights REEEP efficiency project in Indonesian tempe industry

If you’re interested in energy efficiency, improving health and livelihoods, and environmental protection, it’s time to talk about tempe. What is tempe? It is a firm soy-based product similar to tofu and the most consumed protein source in Indonesia. It contains antioxidants, and has numerous health benefits, including reducing cholesterol and preventing hypertension. Tempe in Indonesia is a €700 million per year industry, yet the majority of producers are micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs), most of which still operate under sub-standard, unhygienic conditions and use mainly firewood as fuel.
