About Us, status of project and need for a Circular Economy

Enjoy the best design and  function combined together  

An NDA & Memorandum of Engagement (MoE) has been signed and soon a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) once the Tender has been completed for the ZERO waste ZERO landfill plant – 100% recycling of glass & metals and clean Renewable Energy generation to assist Kisumu – Sustainable ZERO waste to Landfill and Renewable Energy targets. A full list of Government Waste reports and Policies together with University Waste Reports can be viewed at the top of this page.
Kisumu Power Purchase Agreements (PPA’s) will help pay for the plant Kisumu plant could be operational before July / August 2023. Trucks will be made available in June / July 2022. The partner company PSECC Ltd have been involved in Kenya since 2012 with solar farm development in Konsa and Nakuru.

We have formed links with Moi University, Nairobi University and Riara University and support from Nakuru Governor for Renewable Energy development. PSECC Ltd, the facilitation company have delivered on Intergovernmental Renewable Energy projects in Africa   

Structure of Waste Management in Kisumu

Each Waste plant will be incorporated into an Educational Centre Net Zero

ALSET POWER’s partner, Siemens, along with Bio Carbon Fuels offers this proposal to construct the Kakamega County Environmental Education Centre with a Total Recovery Facility® (“TRF®”) inside, which will produce building products and renewable electricity and liquid fuels in the second and third phases of this project.

Environmental Education Centre that will convert MSW and other waste streams into composite building products and clean electricity and renewable on-road transportation fuels (the “Project”). 

The system proposed will initially consume up to 500 tpd in the plant for the City of Kisumu, the County has 5,720 tons of MSW currently available in the Kisumu County area, so seven plants can be built. 

This will eliminate the current practice of landfill saving millions of dollars over current practices.  The Project will be scalable to take advantage of future growth opportunities expandable to all the MSW in the including agricultural waste and other various waste streams giving Kisumu 100% reuse and complete recycling with no need for any waste to go to a landfill. 

About Kisumu waste

Energy for Net Zero

The City’s Solid Waste Management Crisis Kisumu city is faced with problems of lack of solid waste collection facilities and low efficiencies in operation of existing facilities as well as the design, capacity and location of final disposal sites. The poor management of solid waste has resulted into generation of leachate which pollutes the ground water and soil, the spread of infectious diseases, blockage of sewers and drainage systems, spread of foul smoke from private burning of waste as well as pollution of Lake Victoria through run-off. Plastic waste used in most packaging is the most conspicuous nuisance, littering many parts of the City‟s commercial, industrial and residential neighbourhoods. Furthermore, scavengers and others are exposed to health risks as no separation of hazardous waste fractions is practiced. As stated above, most of the solid waste generated in the city remains uncollected with a collection efficiency estimated at 25%. The collection that takes place is shared between the city authority and a few private collectors mainly concentrated in the high income areas, leaving the poor peri-urban neighbourhoods largely unattended. Waste transported to the dumpsite for disposal is not properly managed, often applying open burning to reduce the waste volume. Many households, particularly in the peri-urban and extended areas do not have the privilege of any mode of collection, and have resorted to private burning of waste or digging their own pits to bury the waste on site.

Horizon 2030

Kisumu Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan (KISWaMP)

County Government of Kisumu City of Kisumu Kisumu Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan (KISWaMP) by horizon 2030 An updated, revised and operational version of the previous plan

Kisumu City generastes 500 tpd MSW – Kisumu Countyn generates 5,720 tpd MSW

Kisumu County Government Data

Kisumu City 500 tonnes per day of MSW is generated our Gasification & Recycling could produce 671.54 KWh per tonne of MSW = 112,482 MWh of electricity each year from the plant.

Kisumu County generates about 5,720 tons of solid waste per day (as per Kisumu-County-CIDP-II-2018-2022-3) ten further plants possible. .

Clear Landfill sites, reduce waste.

Kisumu transition into a Circular Economy – Zero Waste – Zero Landfill

Kachok Landfill Site

The Kachok Landfill site in Kisumu – the new plant will be sited in Kisumu and use the waste in the landfill as a mix with normal generated daily waste. Pickers can also be paid to bring plastic & tryes to our plants.

Waste Hierarchy

Kisumu City 500 tonnes per day – we recovery energy by treating the waste with Gasification and 100% Recycling of glass, metals and Ash, which are then reused for manufacturing of new goods. No contamination of by-products – Circular Economy. ZERO waste is disposed to landfill

The need for Sustainable Waste Management

Officials wished to see improvements in waste management in Kisumu and are very pleased to have the funding and Gasification & Recycling plants from Alset Power Company Inc (USA) – Renewable Electricity produced, 100% recycling of glass and metals. New Concrete Building blocks made from Ash & Glass mixed with cement

The need – the solution

Kisumu have their strategy & we have the solution & funding

Kisumu have their Strategy to reduce waste and have a new Waste Management Facility just opened to try to be more sustainable

Siemens EPC company to build plants

Alset Power will appoint Siemens to build the plant. Siemens have built over 1,000 Power Plants Globally.

Our Gasification & Siemens EPC company to build the plants

We have built over 1,000 power plants globally. Alset Power bring with them the EPC company, Siemens built the Kentucky plant in the USA

Continual monitoring

Power producers, grid operators,  power utilities, industrial companies, and municipalities can manage  tasks economically and efficiently

Generation & installations teams

The most professional installation teams work on this project guaranteeing maximum power output, efficient waste handling and monitoring emissions.

Recycling, Energy production Gasification and Manufacturing

100%. Recycling of the glass, metals, ceramics & ash and manufacture of building blocks and food production using waste carbon dioxide. Plastic is used for electricity production

Glass is recycled

What comes out – Zero waste goes to the landfill sites from our plant as new products are made from the 15 tonnes per day of glass from the plant, ash & ceramicsCircular Economy in action

Metal is recycled

ZERO waste goes back into the landfill sites – 10 tonnes per day from the plant of metals are resold for reuse in manufacture of new products  .

New building blocks for homes

New products are made such as building concrete blocks for house building or road building material from the 15 tonnes per day (tpd) of glass & 10 tpd of Ash 100% Reuse & Recycling

Tyres processed & Renewable Energy produced

Adaptive planning, Circular Economy, manufacturing & food production

Tyres are Recycled

Rubber is used for electricity production the steel is recycled for new products 100% Reuse & Recycling

Electricity Generated

Renewable Energy – 112,482 MWh each year of electricity is produced now in Kisumu from the cleanest method possible, Gasification with Zero to Landfill

Food production

Our partner company PSECC Ltd are currently the Lead company on an International Collaboration Agricultural project in Kenya to cool gooseberries by solar window to be funded in 2022 by the UK Government InnovateUK. Our partners are the University of Greenwich & Moi University in Kesses, Eldoret, Kenya & Maridadi Farm Enterprise, Shamberere Hse. Moi Avenue, Kitale, Kenya. Also – Alset Power Company can build greenhouses to grow fresh produce for the local markets. The Tomato plants absorb the CO2 and convert it to oxygen, thus making the Zero-Waste power plants 100% earth-friendly and environmentally qualifies for carbon credits internationally.

Structure of waste management in Kisumu – 25% of waste is collected each day, the majority of waste is Landfilled
