The project is designed to address water pollution caused by the discharge of untreated industrial effluent by multiple industry types within the Nairobi Rivers Basin
Sanergy aims to establish a first-of-its-kind biochar production facility in Kenya to combat organic waste from the food and beverage sector. SMEP is funding the feasibility study which precedes the establishment of this pilot plant.
Assessing the Feasibility of a Biogas and Wastewater Treatment Plant at Victory Farms, fish farm and processing facility
SMEP is funding Victory Farms (VF) and the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) to conduct a feasibility study to pilot the i) production of biogas (energy) by utilising fish waste and ii) the treatment of the wastewater from the production process.
Waste to Energy: The case for anaerobic digestion in Kenya and Uganda Organic waste is released through water and land pathways into waterbodies and landfills. Release of organic waste into these pathways results in production of GHGs and negatively impacts aquatic and human health. This report investigate the potential of anaerobic digestion as a suitable technology
This report investigates whether organic pyrolysis could be an effective technological solution to the current unsustainable rate of GHG emissions accredited to the many food & beverage industries in these countries.
Wastewater treatment: Potential of membrane technology to neutralize wastewater pollutants in Kenya and Uganda
This report, prepared by Open Capital Advisors for the SMEP programme, provides a comparative assessment of the potential of membrane technology to address key challenges faced by many manufacturers in Kenya and Uganda.

Pollution from Manufacturing in Kenya and Uganda and Potential Private Responses Based on research from Open Capital Advisors (OCA) in Kenya and Uganda, this sankey flowchart illustrates potential private-sector responses to mitigate manufacturing pollution from selected sectors of those countries, based on their export relevance. The list of solutions includes those available through local and
