Aquaponic farms will now be complimented with Hydroponic farming, Animal husbandry are identified endeavours which will effectively boost agricultural development in the medium-to-long term in Africa. Our agribusiness activities will support farmers at every step enhancing their productivity and prosperity with our products and services.

Goldcet Cattle Operations

A pressing need exists within Africa for cheaper, regular and reliable supplies of energy and sustainable food production. This requirement is fuelled by burgeoning levels of population growth, social need and the resultant market demand across all levels of its population and from ever-increasing commercial and industrial appetites. Goldcet recognises Africa’s burgeoning appetite for sustainable energy and food. To address this need, Goldcet has developed sustainable and effective solutions strategically designed to transform African farming and energy requirements.

Goldcet Africa helps enlightened producers embrace a new progressive emphasis which focuses on intensive finishing with a targeted focus embracing the feeding of grain-based concentrates. Our improved techniques have been developed from firstly observing and listening to African agricultural practitioners before then introducing our impactive cutting edge technology grounded in educational support and helping practitioners to gain insights and beliefs in our strategies.

Based upon initial research into the successful cattle well-being and development featuring Piedmontese cows, our technological advanced processes produce record levels of lean, flavoursome beef which outstrips existing carcass dressing attainments by producing as much as 14% more beef attaining vastly improved cholesterol levels.

Our Goldcet solutions address and satisfy both todays and tomorrows African Consumer Market requirement for lean, low in cholesterol beef which consumers appreciate and acknowledge as being as delicious beef.

The Cow Palace

Goldcet works in partnership with innovative leaders and institutions in devising a novel way of blending diverse modern technologies to produce high quality beef and as a bonus also helps our Clients produce ‘stand-alone’ cheap electricity and fuel from our designated renewable sources. Our environmentally friendly solutions help reduce negative carbon impact on the environment while at the same time improving the welfare of cattle.

Goldcet Cow Palaces incorporate technology and science to provide the ultimate humane environment which then produces quality beef delivering higher growth and with significant cost savings The concept of 'The Cow Palace' is to use technology and science to manage the environment to grow cattle in such a manner as can attain a better-quality product at a higher rate of growth and at a lower cost.

The concept requires beef cattle to be reared indoors in a controlled environment while allowing a number of new farming techniques to be introduced.

Cattle are fed on hydroponic fodder, delivered by an advanced robotic feeding system featuring automated systems will also control temperature, lighting and airflow.

Cattle are humanely reared indoors in our scientifically managed and monitored environment which embraces automation, temperature, lighting and airflow controls.

Cattle are fed on our carefully selected and proven hydroponic fodder, delivered by an advanced robotic feeding system featuring automated systems will also control temperature, lighting and airflow.

Our Cow Palaces’ significantly dispense with the unnecessary expensive of Incurring previously traditional levels of grazing acreage being required to feed cattle by reducing grazing acreage by up to 85% of existing requirement, thus freeing up land for alternative usage and this in turn provides an additional solution to current hostilities involving herdsmen and farmers.

Hydroponic System

Our hydroponic system of fodder delivery produces daily ‘seed to feed’ harvests to beneficially feed and sustain cattle.

Renewable Energy

We are committed to increasing the amount of renewable electricity generated on sites and pioneering low carbon technologies to improve the efficiency of assets.
We're seeing more on-site renewable generation come to life as new developments and projects complete and the technologies we specify in design will be activated.
We source 100% of our electricity supplies through our corporate contract backed renewable sources and are committed to achieving increased megawatts of renewable electricity capacity as we roll out more projects.

Renewable energy is central to achieving our goals. Using renewables (as oppose to fossil fuels) brings other advantages and opportunities, ranging from environmental to socio-economic and political.

Combatting climate change. The burning of fossil fuels for energy results in a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. Most sources of renewable energy result in little to no emissions, even when considering the full life cycle of the technologies.

Reducing air pollution and improving public health by decreasing pollution and emissions. Worldwide increases in fossil fuel-based road transport, industrial activity, and power generation (as well as the open burning of waste in many cities) contributes to elevated levels of air pollution. In many developing countries, the use of charcoal and fuelwood for heating and cooking also contributes to poor indoor air quality.

Bringing added advantages. Renewables can offer lower costs and stable energy prices. There also are opportunities for the development of local industry, and increased job opportunities. Renewables can bring increased reliability and resilience of the energy system and energy supply, including resilience to weather-related impacts of climate change. For example, after hurricanes Irene and Sandy hit the US east coast in 2012, locations within the New York metropolitan area began investing in renewables and microgrids to help prevent power shortages during future storms. Goldcet will promote natural capital and help combat climate change problem.

Methanol and Plant

Methanol is emerging as a clean, sustainable transportation fuel of the future across the world. Methanol can be blended with gasoline in low-quantities and used in existing road vehicles, or it can be used in high-proportion blends such as M85-M100 in flex-fuel or dedicated methanol-fueled vehicles. Technology is also being commercialized to use methanol as a diesel substitute. Methanol is a clean-burning fuel that produces fewer smog-causing emissions — such as sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter — and can improve air quality and related human health issues. Methanol is most commonly produced on a commercial scale from natural gas. It can also be produced from renewable sources such as biomass and recycled carbon dioxide and anything that is, or ever was, a plant.

The Benefits of Methanol:

Low-Emission Fuel: Methanol is a clean-burning fuel that produces fewer smog-causing emissions — such as sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter — and can improve air quality and related human health issues.

It can be made from a variety of sources: Methanol is most commonly produced on a commercial scale from natural gas. It can also be produced from renewable sources such as biomass and recycled carbon dioxide and anything that is, or ever was, a plant.

It is high-Octane: As a high-octane vehicle fuel, methanol offers excellent acceleration and power. It also improves vehicle efficiency.

It is Economical: Methanol can be produced, distributed and sold to consumers at prices competitive to those of gasoline and diesel with no need for government subsidies.

It is used in Vehicles Worldwide: Methanol fuel blends are used in vehicles around the world, particularly in China. With more than 100 million passenger vehicles, China is the world’s largest user of methanol for automotive fuel.

It is accessible around the world: Methanol is one of the top five chemical commodities shipped around the world each year, and unlike some alternative fuels, is readily accessible through existing global terminal infrastructure.

In summary, Natural gas, from which methanol is made, is more widely distributed globally than crude oil and is present in much larger volume. Consequently it provides greater long term worldwide security of supply than crude oil. Furthermore, methanol can be made from any carbon-containing source, including coal, woodchips, garbage and biomass. Currently a world scale methanol plant has a capacity of one million tonnes per year (tpa), Worldwide production of methanol is 100 million tpa.

The Fuel Additive

There is now a global consensus that air pollution is a serious urban problem and diesel emissions are a major culprit. Diesel engines, while necessary for providing the power to permit modern society to flourish, cannot cost effectively meet the emissions criteria for clean air:
Fuel additives act as a magic potion, with an ability to transform a tired engine into a smooth operator. Fuel additive lowers the temperature the soot burns at, meaning it burns away during normal driving without you having to get your engine very hot. Fuel additives clean the injector and it can reduce carbon in the engines valves.

If you have a modern diesel car, it will most likely have a Diesel Particular Filter. This is a filter which became compulsory a few years ago to help improve emissions. It removes soot from the car’s exhaust by trapping it in the filter.

Unfortunately, this means that soot can easily build up in the filter, and eventually it becomes blocked. The soot burns away at high temperatures – such as when you’re driving on a motorway for a long time – but if you drive in a city or do a lot of stop/start driving you won’t burn the soot away, meaning you’ll experience blockages quite regularly.

The fuel additives have the following:
• Boost your fuel quality to protect your engine
• Reduce your fuel consumption and your running costs
• Reduce your carbon footprint

Positive Impacts on Petrol Operated Engines (POE)
• Removes already existing deposits (clean-up)
• Prevents formation of new deposits (keep-clean)
• Enables better start-up and performance
• Prolongs engine life
• Improves fuel economy

Positive Impacts on Diesel Operated Engines (DOE)
• Removes already existing deposits (clean-up)
• Prevents formation of new deposits (keep-clean) and prolongs engine life
• Enables better start-up and performance
• Improves cetane number and fuel stability
• Improves fuel economy

Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a natural, decomposition process. Through this process, biomass (organic material that comes from plants and animals) is converted into a variety of resources under oxygen free conditions. AD produces biogas, a methane rich gas that can be used as a fuel, and digestate, a source of nutrients that can be used as a fertiliser.

The World Biogas Association (WBA), the trade body for the biogas industry, has issued a series of recommendations on how governments, financial institutions and other key decision-makers can support the industry in fulfilling its decarbonisation potential.

This follows on from the recent publication of WBA’s Global Potential of Biogas report, which claimed that biogas, produced by anaerobic digestion, could reduce world greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 12 per cent. The recommendations focus on the need to move away from fossil fuels and invest in alternative energy sources by developing the anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas industry.

Biogas technology offers a means for efficient conversion of organic wastes into energy, valuable biofuels and high quality fertilisers. Biogas production is a closed process with zero greenhouse gas emissions, and thus, an efficient means of cutting down the emissions from waste treatment.

Increasingly AD is being used to make the most of our waste by turning it into renewable energy. It is widely used to treat wastewater and can also be used to treat other feedstocks, including domestic and commercial food waste, manures and crops.

The biogas can be used to generate electricity and heat to power on site equipment and the excess electricity can be exported to the National Grid. Other possible uses for the biogas include injection to the gas grid and compressing it for use as a vehicle fuel.

A further by-product of the process is digestate, which is rich in nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and other elements required for healthy plant growth and fertile soil.

Digestate is a stable, nutrient rich substance and can be used for a range of products and purposes: most usefully as a fertiliser, rich in nutrients, but also as a feedstock for biomass, and in low-grade building materials, like fibreboard. 


Part of our future plan is to build Bio plants in Africa which will deliver superior profits and provide jobs for the citizenry. The feedstock is biomass waste product converted into a fuel that can be burnt by all WID compliant Boiler and CHP plants. We will focus our initial feedstock on composite organic fines, but the longevity of the plant will come from the ability of the Bio plant to use various different biomass waste products to produce Bio Solution. The plant generates revenues from both feedstock gate fees and biomass Bio sales. The biomass Bio Solution is a Waste to Energy Fuel and a significant addition to the biomass fuel market. This fuel will eventually get an “an end of life certification” and be usable in all types of Biomass boilers.


Goldcet is currently working with other partners to develop several novel technologies to enhance the role of methanol as a transport fuel.

Goldcet works in partnership to patent and deliver a low-cost unique additive which is less expensive yet overcomes cold start deficiencies.

  The result will deliver a commercially less expensive substitute for petrol and one which promotes higher fuel efficiency which will in turn complement our product being usage more efficiently in diesel engines.

  Goldcet also works with the inventors of a system of engine operation which enables the amount of relatively expensive additive to be minimised, so allowing the engine user to enjoy lower fuel costs as well as cleaner exhaust emissions and a further advancement which provides improved lubricity and anti-corrosion properties which work effectively with methanol to reduce engine wear and improve fuel economy.

All our innovative and proven product lines are offered at prices considerably below current and existing price levels.

From 2020, Goldcet will launch the fodder system as part of a modular 2 tonne package per each of our hydroponic fodder Units. This process incorporates a fodder system capable of producing 2 tonnes of fresh fodder each day contained within a highly insulated building featuring a state-of-the-art climate control system.
