Waste-to-Energy Project Plans in Uganda

A Ugandan social enterprise specialising in agricultural waste to energy project for off-grid applications, Pamoja Cleantech, has joined the Business Call to Action (BCtA) with a commitment to reduce CO2 emissions by 150,000 tonnes each year and increase access to energy for more than 30,000 rural households by 2020.

BCtA is a global initiative that encourages companies to fight poverty through inclusive business models.

Pamoja explained that it builds and operates micro-grids for direct electricity distribution. These micro-grids are powered by biomass fuels that are mainly derived from agricultural residue (corn cobs, ground nut shells, rice husks and coffee husks), or solar energy.
