The Pilot will run for a period of 1 year (2020 - 2021)
saniWASE allows you to generate energy from wastewater. Providing decentralised treatment for onsite sewage and faecal sludge management in peri-urban and urban communities. The system uses a circular economy model to produce:
- biogas for cooking/electricity
- water for irrigation
- organic fertiliser to increase crop yields
Using WASE’s patent pending ‘EMR’ technology it accelerates the breakdown of waste using a unique, low energy (<5W) electrode technology which boosts energy production.
The process stabilises internal reactions during treatment. Regulating the pH and stabilising performance compared to Anaerobic Digesters (AD) ensuring reliable performance that can be monitored and controlled remotely.
SNV have identified SNV Kenya offices on Ngong Road as the pilot site. Organic waste (food waste) will be the main feeder at the SNV offices.
Key facts about the project:
The aim of the project is to validate both the technical and economic aspects of the saniWASE technology.
The key technical performance indicators to be validated at scale are:
- >20% more energy than AD
- 3-10x faster treatment than AD
- Higher waste removal (COD) rates than AD
- Remote operation and monitoring
- Quick ROI of 3-4 years compared to AD’s 5-6
