    Since its inception in 2014, the Government of Ethiopia and a number of international conglomerates have been anticipating the kick-start of the multimillion project. The rise of renewable energy in Africa has opened doors for new technology to find its way in strengthening economies with a better methodology to curb divers challenges. Ethiopia, like most African nations, has been facing a huge barrier in waste disposal in Addis Ababa. The foul smell of mountains of waste has threatened the life of flora and fauna as well as residents.

    The incineration plant in Addis Ababa will transform the economic outlook of the nation, drive the ease of doing business in the environment. The facility will incinerate at least 1,400 tons of waste a day, converting the landfill into energy. The project dubbed as Reppie was constructed to spearhead the nation into a climate resilient green economy, as most European countries are.

    30% of the capital’s households will be supplied with electricity from the plant.

    Which is exactly the percentage of people in Ethiopia that have access to it.

    Doesn't burning trash in incinerators cause pollution?
