Sustainable Manufacturing and Environmental Pollution Programme

SMEP Call for Concepts for solutions to manufacturing pollution in East Africa closes on Thursday, September 15th, 2022

The SMEP Call for Concepts for Piloting solutions that address manufacturing pollution in East Africa opened on July 18th 2022; the deadline for submitting concepts is Thursday, September 15th, 2022, at 13:00 GMT.


All concepts for solutions that show potential for uptake and scaling to address pollution generated by the manufacturing sector will be considered. The call centres on the following themes:

  • Concepts that contribute to reducing or eliminating manufacturing pollution by transforming industrial waste-to-energy inputs for industrial processes or;
  • Through technologies, concepts that directly intercept and preferably recycle by-products from industrial processes.
  • Pollution mitigation concepts that create viable business cases and align with the objectives of these themes, but cannot be strictly categorised into them, will also be considered.


Refer to the Terms of Reference for detailed information on the scope of the procurement and the application guidelines. Visit the SMEP piloting technology solutions page for details on the application process.
