Overview

Now adays, the rate of urbanization has been growing dramatically demanding a better life. By this effect, cities exposed to host as many as people specially Addis Ababa. Due this, much amount of homestead wastes has collected and thrashed without proper waste disposal management resulting exposed to air pollution as well as unpleasant environment.

The government of Ethiopia doing its level best to curb the problem focused on bilateral objectives. The primary objective is to generate electricity from waste substances. On the other hand, to dispose accumulated wastes properly dumped over different areas of the city.

The work on the project was commenced in 2014 and nearing to completion. Reppi Waste to Energy project is the first of its kind in Africa with an installed generation capacity of 50MW.

Over the past two years, civil and electro mechanical works has been executed including completion of works on Boiler hole, steel structure, power house, equipment installation and filter room.

The raw material for the power plant which amounts 1400 tone waste per day, could be supplied by city administration of Addis Ababa.
