The Reppie waste-to-energy project has come online this year, African media has reported. This plant converts some 1,400 tonnes of waste every day, which is nearly 80% of Addis Ababa’s landfill generation. The waste is burned to run a steam turbine. The plant is said to conform to European air emission standards.
The 110 MW plant is proceeded by a waste sorting process that helps in recycling.
