Lagos community begins energy generation from waste

THE second stage of a locally based integrated waste management project, mooted to reduce waste, generate energy and improve livelihoods, using a small scale bio digester system to convert organic waste has been completed.

The pilot project entitled ‘Energy Generation from Waste – A Locally Based Livelihood, Resource Protection and Adaptation Project’ was completed in a local community in Lekki Local Council Development Area in Lagos State. It involved operation, training and testing for optimization activities.

Supported by the African Adaptation Programme, supervised by the Department of Climate Change of the Federal Ministry of Environment and  the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the project is being managed by Community Conservation and Development Initiatives (CCDI).

Apart from using a small scale bio digester system to convert organic waste into electricity, the mini-plant also  produces  fertiliser. The bio digester has been locally fabricated by Midori Solutions and was delivered to the Ebute Lekki community site in February.

The project also includes a greening component where a local playing field is being secured for the use of present and future generations. Lekki is fast developing and needs to secure recreational spaces before they are totally swallowed up by development. The field has been leveled and grass planted, with trees and hedges planted to delineate the perimeter.

A statement by CCDI’s Director, Programmes, Kofo Adeleke said: “It is now operational and generating electricity; being fed with waste from the local communities on a daily basis. The waste is mainly fish and kitchen waste, and grass and water hyacinth; the fish is the most potent biogas generating source of waste. Apprentices drawn from the local community have been trained to operate it. The biogas composition has been tested to show the ratio of methane to biogas and efforts are being made to source for greater quantities of fish waste from the community.

“Energy generation typically generates greenhouse gases which affect the climate and discussions on waste management and climate change are often centred on how to generate energy from waste on the basis that waste can provide a source of renewable energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
