The status in Africa

Steadily increasing amounts of waste

The amount of waste in African countries is increasing noticeably. This is an insoluble problem for the local population.

4,000,000 Population by 2100

Forecasts predict that Africa's population will grow from around 1.3 billion people today to about 4 billion in 2100 (Statista).

Quick solutions are needed

Considering the rapidly growing amounts of waste, this problem must be solved quickly.

Our vision - The solution

Generating electricity from waste

Construction of a waste incineration plant with an associated research institute in the region.

Include existing structures

Support the already established waste management to cope with the problems.

Promoting knowledge and prosperity in the region

Imparting theoretical and practical knowledge. Development of an educational complex for recycling processes.

By building a waste-to-energy plant with an associated research institute in the region, we can quickly and pragmatically convert large amounts of waste into urgently needed energy. We want this waste incineration plant to be understood as just a first step: We believe that we will create a great pull effect when the people in Africa, the communities and the politicians see the first successes on the issue of waste.

We can also offer added value to the population when it comes to “material flows”: In our concept, we offer the prospect of possible sources of income fort he society. The existing waste management should be integrated into this process.

Ideally, there is an educational complex in the region that serves the themes of recycling, culture and mindfulness. In this educational complex, students from Africa and Europe will work directly on improving the recycling process, continuously improving and developing the processes and building competencies.

Achieving more together

  • A more pragmatic, safer and faster approach to sustainable waste management in Africa
  • Building knowledge together with Europe’s technical colleges and universities
  • Building a recycling process – together with the population, communities, government and industry
  • Ensure waste flows to the recycling project – Networking with existing systems
  • Develop income opportunities for the population
  • Build an industry network
  • Dettle companies
  • Dispose of significant amounts of waste and generate clean energy from it
  • Constant and continuous improvement process up to sustainable recycling
  • Settlement of an industrial estate
  • Economy / industry
  • Promotion of tourism in Africa
  • Preserving the environment for future generations
