Study on waste to energy business in Kenya and Ethiopia

This paper analyses the existing value chain of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Agriculture Wastes in Ethiopia and Kenya. The focus of the analysis is the urban scale for MSW conversion
and the industrial scale for agriculture waste conversion, where capacity exists to scale-up industrial relevant Waste to Energy (WtE) projects. These two types of waste represent the main
input for WtE technologies, which are key components of a sustainable waste management strategy. The paper will show how WtE technologies represent efficient and competitive solutions to manage increasing waste generation and transform wastes in sustainable, climate friendly bioenergy
