Afinya Energy Project

Accra, Ghana - American Development affiliate, the CEXIM Group, signed a memorandum of understanding with community leaders in Afyina, Ghana, to install a 50MW waste-to-energy facility. “This presents a tremendous opportunity for us to address multiple issues concerning the country right now in both environmental and energy matters,” said Dan Kaiser, managing director of CEXIM. "I'm very grateful to members of the community council for coming together on this issue and recognizing the importance of it to both the environment and the community, and look forward moving ahead in the months to come," he continued.

While the situation with municipal waste disposal continues to worsen as landfills are over filled and new ones are not coming on line fast enough to abate the growing environmental problem, Kaiser notes that in order for this to be successful authorities must also agree to send their municipal waste to the power generation facility. “That seems to be the issue right now. Despite the environmental problems, getting everyone on board for this is the next big challenge for us,” Kaiser said.

Asked about the impact on employment in the area, a company spokesman stated the Afyina project is projected to create over 200 direct jobs. Additional independent contractor opportunities will also be created to transport municipal and other waste, including materials hazardous to the environment, to the plant for disposal.
