Waste incineration in Kibera

A project has been set up in the Kenyan slum Kibera to incinerate waste and use this process to generate heat.

Collecting waste, burning it in a huge incinerator and using the resulting heat to cook. The residents of the slum Kibera in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi are enthusiastic about this new initiative in their neighbourhood and are eager to contribute. The processing of waste improves the living conditions in the neighbourhood: not only does it create jobs, it also prevents unnecessary dumping of waste. It also results in a cleaner environment and this, in turn, prevents diseases, especially among children.
