Kenya: sefa grant transforms waste into power

In support of a 10MW grid-connected municipal waste-to-energy plant in Kenya, the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA) has approved a $995,000 grant to Asticom Kenya Ltd. The SEFA 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 and transaction advisory services.

The pilot project will be located in Kabira, a suburb of Nairobi, and will generate electricity from municipal solid waste by converting them to biogas, fuel ethanol.
