Creating & Capturing value: supporting enterprise for urban liquid

The project's goal is to support and increase the interest of stakeholders in the public private sector in the commerialization of sustainable reuse and recycling of wastes in order to reduce waste transport costs support the lifetime of landfills and reduce environmental impacts. The project proposes 3 main components: 1. a co composting facility in Techiman which will annually transform 6,000 m3 of faecal sludge from public toilets and houdeholds and 300 tons of organic urban solid wastes (including e.g. market waste) into 200 tons of safe (pelletized) compost under the brand name Fortifer. Drying beds are used fo primary treatment of the faecal sludge prior to co composting. 2. A briquette plant in Afienya (Dangme West) to convert 3,300 tons per year of organic urban solid wast into 1,000 tons per year low cost fuel briquettes for use by business institutions and households 3. The production of African cat fish and or fish feed in well treated waste water in Kumasi to create enough revenue to cover the operational and maintenance costs of the treatment ponds. In concept all interventions will be supported by capacity building activities of public and private sectors. The project creates direct employment for 200 people and more in the product distribution and retail chain primarily women.
