(via Sustainable sanitation solution for urban slums | Springwise)
Sanergy installs low-cost sanitation centers in Kenyan slums, collects the human waste, and transports it to a nearby processing plant where the waste is converted to energy and sold to the grid. Billions of dollars have been spent on sanitation in developing countries yet it is still one of the largest problems in the world. This creative model by Sanergy offers a reliable income stream for Sanergy and the slums inhabitants, proper sanitation, and provides renewable energy. If Sanergy is sucessful could this model be used in other slums around the world? Additionally, is their any application for using human waste to power the grid in developed nations?
