Sprawling slums, inadequate health facilities, outdated transport infrastructure and a waste disposal system literally bursting at the seams are just some of the woes the Nairobi County government has to address. Conspicuously missing from that formidable list is the environmental impact that these rigors of rapid urbanization have on the city. One of these is the growing number waste tires and plastics in landfills. Nairobi accounts for 60% (30,000 tons equivalent) of all waste tires in Kenya. As for plastics Nairobi produces 211,315 tons/year . On average, 27,500 tons of waste tires are burnt annually to salvage scrap metal and 82% of the plastic annual consumption (i.e. 173,...

Problem While Nairobi comprises only 0.1% of all the land in Kenya, it accommodates 10% of Kenya’s population. Sprawling slums, inadequate health facilities, outdated transport infrastructure and a waste disposal system literally bursting at the seams are just some of the woes the Nairobi County government has to address. Conspicuously missing from that formidable list is the environmental impact that these rigors of rapid urbanization have on the city. One of these is the growing number waste tires and plastics in landfills. Nairobi accounts for 60% (30,000 tons equivalent) of all waste tires in Kenya. As for plastics Nairobi produces 211,315 tons/year . On average, 27,500 tons of waste tires are burnt annually to salvage scrap metal and 82% of the plastic annual consumption (i.e. 173,278 tons/year) is either disposed of in landfills or burnt. Due to lack of financial incentives, there is currently no sustainable alternative to dealing with this waste. Solution We propose to set up an energy efficient project that converts waste tires and plastics into electricity by running a generator fueled by pyrolysis oil. The plant will be located within a 40km radius of the Nairobi Central Business District as this will be the main source of our feedstock. The project is configured around two sets of stakeholders: the feedstock suppliers (sourced from the informal sector) engaged through off-take agreements, and the market comprised power off-takers either directly (commercial power consumers) or through the grid in the form of a Feed in Tariff (FIT).

If you live in Nairobi or have visited the city lately, then there's every chance that you  might have come across mounts of garbage and encountered the uncomfortable stench emanating from the heaps of uncollected waste littering parts of the city centre and several residential areas. So dire is the situation that the Nairobi county government  has been forced to enlist the services of the National Youth Service  and volunteers from  the affected communities in a bid to restore Nairobi's lost glory.
