ALMODO

Managing waste and its recovery to make goods ranging from building materials to energy substitutes
2009 SEED Award Winner Water, Sanitation & Health (WASH) Niger

ALMODO, established in 2005, is a sustainable solid waste management system suitable for lower income urban areas where it offers training and waste management services to municipalities and civil societies. It collects, centralises and ecologically recovers waste which is then transformed into products useful for the local community such as school slate, paving stones, bricks, latrines, organic fertilisers or combustibles. ALMODO is innovative because the products are made from waste at the source and the equipment and process do not require expertise, and can therefore be used by anyone.

ALMODO targets especially low income communities who suffer from poor sanitation in their living environment and from low purchasing power.
