Project Peanut Butter


Compressed Gas Technologies (CGT) (nitrogen-generators.com), with offices in the United States and Canada, has partnered with Project Peanut Butter (PPB) (projectpeanutbutter.org) to equip PPB’s third RUTF (Ready to Use Therapeutic Food) production facility in Ghana, Africa with two nitrogen generation systems.

Project Peanut Butter produces and distributes a peanut based, vitamin enriched product called RUFT. Developed and clinically tested by founder Dr. Mark Manary, Professor of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, Project Peanut Butter successfully treats thousands of severely malnourished children each year. Since 2004 PPB has been supporting communities by purchasing local products where possible and staffing its production facilities and mobile clinics with local workers.

The Ghana production plant, which will begin full operation in the spring of 2015, is the third PPB facility tasked with producing RUTF. Project Peanut Butter anticipates that this new site will eventually treat 18,000 severely malnourished children in Ghana each year.
