Benin entrepreneur harnesses biowaste to power homes, farms

Rachel Faber of Reuters reports on a Benin company that is turning waste into power.

The C3 Take
  • Benin Biogas is a company that is turning everyday food waste into clean fuel in Benin.
  • The company has built networks of concrete tanks underneath neighborhoods and industrial zones that act as reactors, turning organic waste into biogas.
  • These projects provide power to over 560 households.
  • Benin Biogas is also working to convert organic waste into high-quality fertilizer so farmers can reduce dependence on expensive, imported fertilizers.

“In a world grappling with climate change and the search for sustainable energy solutions, Enock Gnaga hopes his company Benin Biogas’s complete waste-to-energy cycle will usher in a renewed dedication to environmental stewardship for his country.”
