WOIMA aligning with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation



Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries. It has long been recognized that growth in productivity and incomes, and improvements in health and education outcomes require investment in infrastructure,

Inclusive and sustainable industrial development is the primary source of income generation, allows for rapid and sustained increases in living standards for all people, and provides the technological solutions to environmentally sound industrialization.

Technological progress is the foundation of efforts to achieve environmental objectives, such as increased resource and energy-efficiency. Without technology and innovation, industrialization will not happen, and without industrialization, development will not happen.

  • Basic infrastructure like roads, information and communication technologies, sanitation, electrical power and water remains scarce in many developing countries
  • About 2.6 billion people in the developing world are facing difficulties in accessing electricity full time
  • 5 billion people do not have access to reliable phone services
  • Quality infrastructure is positively related to the achievement of social, economic and political goals
  • For many African countries, particularly the lower-income countries, the existing constraints regarding infrastructure affect productivity by around 40%
  • Industrialization’s job multiplication effect has a positive impact on society. One job in manufacturing creates 2.2 jobs in other sectors
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises that engage in industrial processing and manufacturing are the most critical for the early stages of industrialization and are typically the largest job creators. They make up over 90% of business worldwide and account for between 50-60% of employment

WOIMA is committed to helping the developing countries to promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. The tool is our modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant that will

  • incinerate cleanly the waste of 100,000 – 500,000 people
  • generate affordable energy for 50,000 – 100,000 people
  • employ 100 – 200 people
  • generate hundreds of jobs and training opportunities up- and downstream
  • save 100,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year
  • be up and running within 12 months

UN has set the following targets by 2030, supported by WOIMA and our modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant

  • Develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure to support economic development and human well-being
  • Promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and significantly raise industry’s share of employment and gross domestic product
  • Increase the access of small-scale industrial and other enterprises to financial services
  • Upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies
  • Enhance scientific research and upgrade the technological capabilities of industries
  • Facilitate sustainable and resilient infrastructure development through enhanced financial, technological and technical support
  • Support domestic technology development, research and innovation
  • Significantly increase access to information and communications technology and strive to provide universal and affordable access to the Internet for all
