This Innovative Power Plant in Ethiopia turns waste to energy

In this video courtesy World Economic Forum, we find out how the Reppie waste-to-energy power plant in Ethiopia, a first in Africa, burns waste to produce enough energy for up to a quarter of homes in the capital city, Addis Ababa. This innovation is changing how the African nation handles its trash significantly decreasing the amount of waste going to landfills and improving the health of the city and its people.

In the video, Global Managing Director, Samuel Alemayehu, talks us through how the project works and the impact and benefits it has for the African nation of Ethiopia. The plant also produces water, eco-friendly bricks and creates hundreds of local jobs.
