Waste to Energy

Bioenergy as the main source of renewable energy today, contributes to energy used in Heat, Electricity and Transport . It accounts for two-third of the renewable energy supply and one-tenth of the world’s total primary energy supply.

Oando Clean Energy is set to lead the net zero emission charge by decreasing the amount of methane generation from illegal dumpsite and landfill as Methane has approximately 30 times higher impact on the environment compared to carbon dioxide.

Implementation of waste to energy systems is a high priority and the target is to produce energy and alternative fuel from waste through biochemical processes such as anaerobic digestion and fermentation, and thermochemical process, such as pyrolysis and gasification.

Nigeria has a power demand of 24MW, however the current generation is 12.522MW from mainly Hydro and Gas, of which only 40% of that is utilized.

The country is the largest country in Africa with an estimated population of 210 million as at 2020 and an annual growth of 2.6% as estimated by the World Bank with an estimated capita of 0.63-0.65Kg/capita/day generating an average of 41,000 tonne/day of waste and up to 42 million tonne of waste annually, with majority of the waste generated as organic waste with good calorific value potential for Waste to Energy.

Lagos state is the most populous and commercial city in Africa, it contributes to 25% of the total waste generation in Nigeria with a poor disposal system and overflowing dumpsites emitting greenhouse gases.

Given the amount of waste generated in Nigeria and the power supply gap, there is potential for waste to energy system deployment by Oando Clean Energy with a focus on converting this readily available resource to power homes and businesses.


Leveraging the abundance of waste resources, Oando Clean Energy aims to provide sustainable energy to power homes and businesses in Nigeria and Africa at large.

The technological advancement and deployment globally provides an opportunity to explore Waste to Energy for commercial and socioeconomic purposes. There are over 2000 Waste to Energy plants converting Municipal Solid Waste to Energy and heat globally.

As a research focused organization, we will utilize feasibility studies, innovation, technology, and partnerships, to determine the best Waste to Energy system and technology capable of handling our specific waste types to generate immense amounts of energy, which can be converted into electricity or fuel.
