In Namibia, bush encroachment of savannas has become a major ecological problem. Large parts of the grass savanna are encroached by primarily endemic bush species, such as  black thorn, with serious consequences for animals, plants and pasture farming. Experts agree that international demand and utilisation of extracted bush can help solve this environmental problem. For this reason, the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Energy and Agriculture and Wärme Hamburg GmbH together with the scientific community, examine the efficient utilisation of Namibian bush biomass in Hamburg. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in May 2020.
