Ghana signs grant with Germany for waste-to-energy project

Ghana has signed a grant agreement of €5,026,027 (GH¢31 million) with Germany for the construction of a community waste-to-energy project in the Ashanti Region.

The 400-KW demonstration project, which will use a hybrid solar PV, biogas and a pyrolysis plant to generate electricity from domestic waste, will start on October 1, 2019 and be completed by November 30, 2023.

Apart from contributing to provide sustainable solutions to the waste and energy challenges in the country, the project will also create more jobs for Ghanaians.
