Diversifying Power Generation
The WOIMA Ecosystem enables the use of new renewable energy sources, thus diversifying the power company’s energy mix. It taps into the most under-utilized fuel base – waste, and kills two birds with one stone. First, using waste reduces the need for imported fossil fuels, which saves valuable foreign currency. Two, it eradicates a significant environmental and health hazard. Combining these merits makes the WOIMA waste-to-value solution the best value for money.
Mitigating Climate Change
Existing landfills are already generating close to 10% of all the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally through the anaerobic digestion of biodegradable material into methane. This trend is only worsening due to continued landfilling of municipal solid waste and different biomasses. The WOIMA Ecosystem can transform these waste streams into clean energy and completely prevent the generations of GHG. This also creates the basis for valuable carbon credits.
Investing with Impact
Impact investing helps promote well-being effectively and in a resource-wise way. It is a means of channeling private equity to projects whose aim is to achieve positive, measurable social benefit. The WOIMA Ecosystem generates, in addition to energy, hundreds of job and training opportunities on-site, upstream and downstream. It also supports the creation of SMEs utilizing the recyclables and energy commodities from the ecosystem.
Complying with the UN SDGs
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. Utility Companies play a key role in this development and the WOIMA Ecosystem offers them the best tool in pursuing these goals.
