Commodities

Creating additional value from Africa's Natural Resources

F5 creates funds through the sale and purchase of commodities. We work with Governments and commercial organisations to seek allocations of, or contracts for, commodities. Transactions are managed by a UK based professional commodities trading company. The commission that we earn on each transaction generates the funding we then use to finance initiatives to protect wildlife and associated community development. 
Donations are of course welcomed as they enable us to do even more.

Crude Oil

Some have a lower sulphur content  which is known as 'sweet crude' (below 0.5%) and the higher sulphur contents are known as 'sour crudes' (above 0.5%). 


Lower density crude (>31.1API) is referred to as 'light crude' and a higher density crude (<22.3API) is referred to as 'heavy crude'.
