China : DP CLEANTECH to ease rollout biomass and waste-to-energy projects in Africa

January 28, 2014

DP Cleantech (DPC), a clean energy facility will join forces with Cambridge Industries (CI), based in Addis Ababa to ease the rollout of biomass and waste-to-energy projects in Africa.

The initial project, in association with China National Electrical Engineering (CNEE) has been secured, and will offer a waste-to-energy plant in Ethiopia.

DPC will deliver the technology to the project to generate clean electricity, whereas all-dry flue gas treatment technology will be utilized to meet strict EU-standard emission limits needed by the Ethiopian government.

The project has been built up by CI and CNEE on a turnkey basis for Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP).

DPC CEO Simon Parker stated: The development of waste-to-energy has gained some traction in Africa, and the commitment of EEP is a significant step towards securing Ethiopia s future energy needs. The partnership with CI will enable us to advance the role that we believe waste and biomass have to play in the clean energy future of the continent.

To be situated beside the Reppie landfill site, the biggest site of its kind in Ethiopia, the plant will make use of that available feedstock as its source of renewable energy.

Already design and preparatory work has started on the project.
