Kampala, Uganda

Project Particulars

It is becoming widely accepted that renewable fuels will be an integral part of the energy transition and circular economy of the future. Whether it be renewable diesel or sustainable aviation fuel, our ability to stop the use of these hard-to-abate fuels immediately is not realistic. Low to zero-impact solutions for addressing this transition represent huge opportunities for energy developers.

The city of Kampala in Uganda, is amongst the largest cities in Africa, with a population of approximately 1,700,000, a greater area population approaching 7,000,000, and a growth rate of approximately 4%. Kampala Capital City itself generates roughly 2,500 tons per day of municipal solid waste, of which, approximately 40% is collected. The greater area Entebbe Municipal Council (“EMC”) generates over twice this amount daily. The waste is then disposed of, at either the overcapacity Kiteezi landfill or by illegal methods that include illegal dumping and/or burning.

IEg believes there is a tremendous opportunity within the Entebbe region to take what would be otherwise waste and convert it into renewable fuels, all while creating jobs for the local economy and creating a cleaner and healthier environment for the people of Kampala and the Entebbe region.
