Conversion and Distribution
In urban slums with 40% unemployment, Sanergy's waste management team is primarily staffed from the communities in which they work.
Deriving value from waste
and farms into high-value agricultural inputs, which
are sold to farmers to strengthen
Kenya’s farmers are working to produce more food on less land to feed Kenya’s growing population. According to the Kenyan Ministry of Agriculture, the main threat to Kenyan food security is soil depletion, caused by over-farming and an over-reliance on chemical fertilizers. To combat this, farmers are looking for an organic amendment to restore the health of their soil and improve their crop yields.
Kenya’s feed millers have limited choice when it comes to protein additives for their animal feed, and most rely on omena or fishmeal; however, this is harvested unsustainably from Lake Victoria, in erratic quantities and with hugely varying quality.
To help farmers restore their soil health, Sanergy converts waste into a nutrient-rich, pathogen-free organic fertilizer that adds nutrients to the soil, increases crop yields by 30%, and improves farmers’ incomes.
With a colony of Black Soldier Flies, Sanergy produces an insect-based protein input for animal feed that feed millers appreciate for its consistency, purity, and quality.
Ensuring Operational Sustainability
Sanergy produces biogas to offset the operational and logistical costs in the conversion process. By developing a local supply of energy, Sanergy significantly reduces dependence on the local electricity grid and further improves operational efficiency.
