NWSC Denies Reports Biodigester Electricity Project Failed

The agency in charge of water and sewage in Uganda has dismissed a news report that a massive biodigester electricity project had failed because the waste collected from Kampala residents did not produce enough methane.

The state-linked New Vision news site had quoted Dr Florence Grace Adongo, the director of water resources management in the Ministry of Water and Environment, as blaming the residents’ diet.

“It seems that what we are eating is lacking something, the diet of the people is not producing methane,” she was quoted as saying.

“This information is not true,” the National Water and Sewerage Company tweeted. 

The agency added that the project had not been commissioned and work was still ongoing.

The Bugolobi Wastewater Treatment Plant is reported to be the largest such plant in East Africa, capable of processing 45 million litres of sewage daily.

The project was funded by the Ugandan government with support from the African Development Bank, the European Union and KfW – the German development agency.
