African Development Bank grants Asticom Kenya $995,000 to study 10MW WTE project

January 2, 2018 |

In the Ivory Coast, Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA), managed by the African Development Bank, has approved a grant of $995,000 to Asticom Kenya Ltd., to support the construction of a 10 megawatt (MW) grid-connected municipal waste-to-energy (WTE) plant.

The grant will fund the cost of conducting a full environmental and social impact assessment, detailed engineering designs, and  provide project-related legal advisory services, as well as financial/transaction advisory services.

The project will be located in Kibera, a suburb of Nairobi, and will generate electricity from municipal solid waste by converting them to biogas/ fuel ethanol. The planned diversion and use of municipal solid waste will have significant health, social and development outcomes, and will be of benefit to the inhabitants of Kibera− a community that receives 1,000 tons of municipal solid waste daily from the Nairobi County.
