Project Overview

Our Organisation is keen on providing real sustainable solutions to real problems in simple yet innovative ways.

Plastic Capture Device

According to the 2020 report by the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Authority, 90% of the 2500 tons of plastic wastes that flow into the Indian Ocean, comes from major rivers such as River Athi Galana. As a result of the dysfunctional solid wastes management within the informal settlements in major urban areas, all the wastes from the 1 million households are always deposited into the different sections of the river where they are transported directly to the marine environment.

Recycling and Repurposing

We have established an elaborate recycling infrastructure that currently turns plastic wastes trapped and removed from the various river sections into viable products with demand in the construction industry. Some of the products we make from the waste plastic include; pavement blocks for walk paths, cycle way and streets, fencing poles and construction bricks.

Rehabilitation of the illegal dumpsites

Along with rapid population growth and urbanization, poor solid waste is emerging as public health risk in Kenya. According to the 2020 report by Urban Africa Risk Knowledge, up to 80% of plastic plus other waste that is generated by households in urban slum areas in Kenya is disposed poorly in rivers and illegal dumpsites. In Nairobi for instance, up to 2500 tons of waste (50%) generated daily remains uncollected which translates into widespread unsafe disposal in urban river systems.

Mobile Mini-Grid

In order for rural communities in the developing world to access energy for productive uses like fabrication, food preservation, milling and different economic activities, they require access to minigrid-scale power (typically 10kwp or below). Yet minigrids are notoriously commercially unsustainable, due to the capital expenditure required, and difficulties in efficiently matching loads and supply throughout the day and week.
