BIDI Group poised to take advantage of AfCFTA

BIDI Group, a firm into cleaning for oil marketing companies, is poised to take advantage of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) which has created over 1.3 billion consumers for businesses in Africa.


Towards that, the firm is in active discussions with relevant agencies and institutions on procedures to export products under the new single market.

With a presence already in Cote d'Ivoire, the firm intends to leverage more on its experience to make the best out of the single market initiative.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BIDI Group, Benjamin Armstrong, who made this known in an interview with the media after the launch of BIDI Group products in Accra, stated that the firm would take keen steps to become a major player in the export space to create more jobs for Ghanaians.

“We have asked the director in charge of health and safety to look into AfCFTA and we believe that very soon we will have the required permit to be able to start exporting through the single market.

“With the success of BioBlast in Ghana, BIDI Group plans to expand its market to other West African countries, starting with Côte d'Ivoire, where the company already has an office. Additionally, the company is in talks with partners in Nigeria to distribute the product there,” he said.

The products

The products, BioBlast Disinfectant and BioBlast HD Cleaner, that have been introduced onto the Ghanaian market are significant breakthroughs in the fight against harmful pathogens.

These innovative products have received certifications for human exposure safety from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States and the Food and Drug Authority (FDA) in Ghana.

BioBlast Disinfectant, a solution for killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi, uses activated aqueous solution of Hypochlorous acid produced using Electro-chemical Activation (ECA) Technology.

This revolutionary disinfectant offers a non-toxic and environmentally friendly alternative for both domestic and commercial use, prioritizing health and safety without compromising effectiveness.

Major milestone

Mr Armstrong said, "We are proud to introduce BioBlast Disinfectant and BioBlast HD Cleaner to the Ghanaian market. These products represent a major milestone in our ongoing efforts to provide safe and effective cleaning solutions.

“We believe that the non-toxic and environmentally friendly nature of BioBlast will revolutionize the field of disinfection in Ghana and beyond."

"In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for effective pathogen elimination has become more evident than ever.

“Traditional cleaning agents often contain harmful chemicals that pose risks to human health. With BioBlast Disinfectant and BioBlast HD Cleaner, we offer a breakthrough solution that prioritizes health and safety without compromising on effectiveness," he said.


BioBlast HD Cleaner, another product introduced by BIDI Group, is produced through Electro-Chemical Activation (ECA) technology, transforming weak salt brine into a powerful cleaning agent.

This all-purpose cleaner is non-toxic, chemical-free, and easy to use. It can be sprayed, wiped, dipped, or misted, making it suitable for institutional, industrial, and commercial applications.

Previously, BIDI Group faced challenges in cleaning tanks due to regulations prohibiting the use of chemicals in these environments.
To overcome this obstacle, the company conducted extensive research and developed the locally manufactured product called BioBlast. 

This alternative product not only resolved the cleaning challenges but also created job opportunities, employing approximately 200 workers.

The manufacturing plant has a production capacity of 6,000 to 20,000 liters of the BioBlast product, allowing for continuous 24-hour production.

What sets BioBlast apart from its competitors is its non-chemical nature, making it safe for humans, animals, and the environment.


Unlike cleaners that contain alcohol, benzene, or harmful acids, BioBlast is biodegradable and does not harm the ecosystem.

This unique product has positioned BIDI Group as a leader in tank cleaning services, particularly in the downstream petroleum sector, in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire.
