  • Made in Germany | Palm Oil -- energy, not emissions

    Palm oil is one of the world's most widely produced vegetable oils. Its production leaves behind huge amounts of wastewater and plant refuse. That leads to emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane - corresponding to the energy yield of 750 millions liters of diesel fuel. The Federal Agricultural Research Centre in Germany has joined forces with an engineering firm in Bremen and the Indonesian Oil Palm Research Institute to develop what is called "zero-waste" technology. They turn part of the plant waste into compost. The rest is used for environmentally benign energy production. Of some 500 palm oil mills in Malaysia and Indonesia, nine have been equipped with the new technology. More facilities are under construction or in the planning stages. Report by: Hagen Tober

    Many people in Sierra Leone use a wood-stove to prepare their meals. Mister Njai traveled to Kenya 19 years ago where he saw ways to cook more economical. When he returned home he came up with a stove that needs less wood: the 'Wonder Stove'. According to Njai his stove has many advantages such as the reduction of deforestation, faster cooking and less smoke production. Although many companies has copied his idea, the stove is a big success. News about Africa is very often filled with stereotyped images of famine, war and disease.

    One of the biggest challenges that farmers in Africa face is finding somewhere to sell their products -- somewhere reliable where they'll get a fair price. In Sierra Leone, the problem is particularly acute. High transport costs and poor infrastructure mean farmers have to sell their goods locally -- and there's no guarantee that they'll find buyers at local markets. The root vegetable cassava is a staple for many families in West Africa and is grown throughout the region. A new UNIDO project is aiming to give farmers a guaranteed place to sell their cassava produce. But it doesn't stop there. It's also looking for ways to add value to the product locally so that it can attract a higher price elsewhere -- and create more wealth for the communities that grow it.

Thousands of people stormed the dump site and poor people dug the chicken up that had been buried in human, garbage and industrial waste. Together with our partner, Masada Waste Management, The Waste Transformers are transforming the waste of Freetown into much needed green energy, water and organic fertilizer.

Waste is a common problem plaguing many urban areas of sub-Saharan Africa. Rapid urbanisation of the region has lead to strains on the employment demands and infrastructure resulting in many slums facing multiple social, environmental, and economic issues. Uncollected waste litters the environment and job opportunities are seriously lacking. Waste to Wealth tackles both these issues as an innovative project that literally does turn waste into wealth. Produced by our in-country project partner, Living Earth Uganda, see how five enterprises have benefited from this project and done just that - turned waste into wealth.
