The only un exploited gold mine behind solid waste in Africa, wealth unknown

Globalization is known to affect peoples’ consumptions, usage of solid materials that eventually results huge solid wastes. Municipal solid wastes (MSW) are waste generated every day. They are also simply known as garbage or trash to many, yet to Saerd Uganda its opportunities and gold mine of wealth. There are various sources of MSW and it can be deduced that every sector of industries are generators of MSW. All sectors are considered as sources of MWS.

One of the major problems in urban centers nowadays is the collection, treatment, transportation, storage, and eventual disposal of waste. Consequently, people have witnessed a relatively poor waste management practices characterized by indiscriminate dumping of refuse in water bodies and isolated places which further exacerbates the already low sanitation level in most African countries. The prevailing increase in the level of urbanization in Africa is expected to continue in the future. However, a major concern is that there are no adequate infrastructural facilities and appropriate land use planning to match up with the demands posed by the urban growth rate especially the slums and ghettos in Africa

We therefore Seek to establish pathways for sustainable development through a combination of private sector innovation and engagement within a supportive national and international policy context. We aspire to tackle number of challenges simultaneously: greenhouse gas emission, poverty, energy, soil conservation, etc. This is possible through innovation technologies and research that encourage development of clean cities, solid waste to energy generation, Biomass to Biofuels, solid waste to fertilizer, waste recycling, waste to soil generation and securing an increasingly greener world.

Biomass is renewable organic material derived from living matter (both plants and animals) excluding fossil fuel. Examples include agricultural residue (such as rice straw and sugar cane residue), food waste and animal waste.
