Energy & Sanitation Engineering Eagle (ESEE)
Converting waste into usable resources through biogas sanitation systems
ESEE operates a community-based business model, where community members are tasked to collect waste, which are sold to the enterprise. ESEE attaches a monetary value to the waste collected by communities, which has indirectly led to community-led natural resources management.
The collected waste is turned into biogas fuel used as alternative energy in cooking, and electricity generation. Collected waste is also turned into biofertilizer that substitutes commercial fertiliser for households and farmers.
Flame Tree Initiative helps ESEE absorb external funding, develop partnerships, and scale their operations.
Mzuzu University - Department of Energy Systems supports the enterprise with capacity building in renewable energy technologies.
