New Technology Of Solid, Liquid Waste Management Introduced In The Gambia

The Ministry of lands, Regional Government and Religious Affairs today 5th September held a special presentation to receipt a project proposal for solid and liquid waste management, and treatment for The Gambia by 7Cbasalia, a team based in the Netherlands through their country partner Alhagie EF Conteh, Managing Director of Dabanani Electrical Company at Ocean Bay in Bakau. 

The Ministry highlights that the project seeks to deploy a new technology which will transform all different categories of unsorted domestic, clinical and industrial waste from all parts of the country into energy as well as reclaim the Bakoteh dumpsite and decontaminate water levels already contaminated by nitrate in Bundung and other parts of the Greater Banjul Area.

Alhagie EF Conteh, Managing Director of Dabanani Electrical Company Ltd during his speech highlighted how the Mayor of KMC and his team has been very supportive of the initiative with a potential to create opportunities for clean energy production as they also envisage a smart and effective solution to the urban waste challenges.

He further expressed that the new proposed technology will bring about a major breakthrough in their collective welfare as it will provide a solution for waste and also eradicate the current challenges of nitrate infiltration into urban water supply systems.

David Gomez, Director of Governance at the Ministry of Local Governments, Lands and Religious Affairs, who represented the Minister of Lands, said they are impressed and hopeful that there is perhaps an end in sight to the perennial problems of sustainable waste management that has remained a major challenge for local Government Authorities.

He further said because of the rapid urban and population growth experienced by The Gambia in the past decade and more, Councils in the Greater Banjul Area in particular are left struggling to provide corresponding waste management services for residents of their jurisdictions.

Dr. Tobias Schmitz, an Environmental Adviser said they are ready to put forward a business plan for this waste management and ways to get rid of the Municipal and liquid waste of the City.
