Biogas system to power lights in Ghana

Accra in Ghana is to start generating power of lighting systems via biogas according to local news reports.

The project is set to use treated human waste at the Tipping Station Worte ground via a $5 million (€3.8 million) waste treatment plant from Scamson Ghana.

‘This project can also commercialise the products of faecal sludge, including pumping back recycled treated water for domestic and agricultural use,’ Scamson CEO Fredrick Sunesson was quoted as saying.

The project may potentially recycle human waste sludge into compost which would eliminate dumping of faecal sludge into open land fill, increasing expertise in sewage management.
