This website is meant as an aid to the Government of Zambia.

Circular Economy transition – Adaptive planning – Net Zero – Climate funding

USA Government funding applications being made to fund the project Feasibility and onto main project finance will come from our Private Banks or COP 26 funding platforms.

Zambia is restructuring the Countries Debt status with IMF and once all procedures are put in place Alset Power Company Inc can also work on provision of USD $350 million for Four Zambia waste plant projects or USD $435 million for Five waste plants.

No Government funding required & no payback by Government. Alset Power Company Inc. will have another agreement with the Government for Alset Power Company Inc. to pay back the funding. Revenue share in each plant back to the Government. Also, USD $700 million for Solar Farms development in Zambia will be obtained from our bankers or the Green Climate Fund. We first propose the Four Waste plants development programme USD 350 million or USD $435 million followed immediately by a second ten x 50MW Solar Farm development programme – USD 700 million – Total for the two development programmes is USD 1.135 Billion to USD 1.21 Billion.

This website is meant as an aid to the Ministry of Green Economy, Government of Zambia to understand the project detail and funding offer being made.

Support also given by PSECC Ltd & the University of Greenwich, London

We have been working with the Bright Future Project company in Zambia who have assisted in facilitation of these four or five large Waste-to-Energy plants (90MW total) & Ten 50MW Solar Farms to be built throughout Zambia. 

The transition into a Circular Economy – Adaptive Planning – Private Bank funding will be arranged once we obtain a good Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) – Feasibility study funding arranged through USTDA.

Also Climate Finance from the COP 26 could be arranged if required – FP080 / FP099 / FP168 being applied for – funding also for SME development from the new Compact Agreement between the UK Government & Zambian Government.

Supported by the Ministry of Green Economy – Next steps are to arrange funding through our Private Banks and we have Registered the Alset Zero Waste Zambia company in Zambia – Engage with the ZDA then Feasibility Studies & PPA, also awaiting our Lusaka City Council second support letter following the EOI submission.

Innovative Solutions for a Developing World

Over Four Decades of Experience & Success

Global Project  Management  •  Infrastructure Development  •  Finance

With an accelerated global population growth exacerbated by consumption habits, there is an immediate need for countries to adopt waste management technologies to mitigate the consequences of climate change. We lead the design and implementation of Waste-To-Energy technologies diverting waste into clean energy with active projects in Asia and Africa. The implementation process we handle includes planning, engineering, procurement, contract management, and funding. 

The new Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) company “Alset Zero Waste Zambia Limited” is fully Registered on the 10th February 2022:

ALSET ZERO WASTE ZAMBIA LIMITED – LCO No.: 120220027980

Successfully registered as a Taxpayer.

TPIN: 2147881145

Reference Number: 1022100097796

The Government will have a 10% Shareholding in each of the Gasification Plants

Our work with the Bright Future Project company in Zambia has gained support from the Ministry of Energy, OPPPI and the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment. As well as facilitation of these four or five large Waste-to-Energy plants and solar farms to be built throughout Zambia Bright Future Project have also been awarded the contract to deal Sustainably with the waste from all the National Parks in Zambia. Director and our in Country partner Ngozika Victoria Onyekwelu of the Bright Future Project is the National Park’s Waste Management and Recycling provider and her work will be included in the Feasibility Study for Zambia in general, funded by the USTDA.

We also are working with Mr Ismail Gallie who has twenty years experience of Waste collection in Lusaka and will register the company G&G Waste to Energy Ltd in Zambia to collect the waste or work with existing waste collection companies in Lusaka and in other regions of Zambia to collect the waste.

Energy Plants ZERO Waste ZERO Landfill & 100% Recycling plants once negotiations have completed, A 25 year concession is required, no funding required from the Zambian Government. This is not Incineration this is Gasification with 100% Recycling of glass, metals, ash, ceramics and electricity production. Plastic is used in the Gasification process to produce much needed clean electricity. Very, very low emissions and 45% more efficient than Incineration. Four waste plants are rated at 18MW per plant producing a total of 649,900 MWh of electricity each year (Renewable Electricity for Zambia – Climate Change Mitigation).

New partnership with Nemchem in Zambia and Africa Power Ltd in the UK – Full productive Recycling Centres.

Recycling Centres
The services below can be combined to produce a productive Recycling Centre. This has been designed to process and recycle all waste that can be produced by an institution, community, or organisation. With every component you can separate out the waste streams and generate value using the technology from Nemchem. This will change the way we manage waste and bring environmental, economic and social benefits to the regions across Zambia contributing to a sustainable and Circular model future.

Waste Biogas Digesters
The pioneering technology from Nemchem will be flexi biogas systems that are constructed at domestic and commercial size, ranging from 6 cubic metres to 50 cubic metres. These highly efficient and durable systems convert organic waste items such as kitchen and food waste or animal manure into valuable waste products.

Zero-Waste toilets
These systems are designed primarily as hygienic toilets that also captures all the gas potential of human waste. With retention time of no less than 90 days, the overflowing bio-slurry is fully broken down, and laboratory tests showing no pathogens. The plants manage this waste and produce gas that can for heating purposes. The plant ensures complete digestion of the waste and existing slurry is safe to use as organic fertilizer.

Plastic Recycling
Plastic waste is collected and separated into different types(I-VI) of plastics. Once the plastic is sorted it is then cleaned to remove any dirt that can lower the quality of the recycled products. The cleaned plastic is then fed into a shredder. Depending on the plastic and setting of the shredder, different colours and sizes of plastic pellets will be made. This shredded plastic can then be used in three different machines: the sheet press, the extruder and the injection moulding machine, which create different valuable or useable products that can be sold.

Brick Press
Out state-of-the-art brick press machines have simplistic but effective design to produce low-cost construction bricks that maintain high value and longevity. The machines operate by using pressure to compact the ash from incinerators, soil and binding agent to create interlocking stabilised soil blocks for low-cosy, low energy construction. Two to four operatives operating the system for eight hours can produce 500 bricks. Approximately 130 bricks can be made from one 50Kg bag of cement.

The COP26 are assisting Zambia with funding – FP080 – FP099 & FP168 Arrangements for Manufacturing plants to be established in Zambia are possible for Solar PV panels, Recycling equipment Biogas equipment technology and Solar Farm developments throughout Zambia (500MW) and this will assist the Ministry of Green Energy and Environment. Other International assistance is provided from the USTDA for Feasibility study funding for the USD $435 million Waste-to-Energy Gasification plant for Zambia. We have also formalised, through PSECC Ltd a partnership with Nemchem Zambia Ltd in Zambia to take forward landfill clean-up, producing Renewable energy and Recycling 100% of plastic.

Additional support for Manufacturing Factories to be established in Zambia using the recycled glass, metals, ash and ceramics and producing new products.

We are at Feasibility study stage and this will be funded by the USTDA – between $1 million to $1.5 million. Project Funding – Private Banks or COP26 will be linked into – Green Climate Fund – FP080/FP099/FP168 – renewable energy & Climate Investor One (CIO) is a blended finance facility. The first component of this COP 26 programme is a development fund, which provides loans in the early stage of a project life cycle such as Feasibility Study. The second component, a construction equity fund, will meet up to 75 percent of total construction costs in tandem with 25% from Alset Power project sponsor Bank.

Four new Net Zero Waste plants & trucks for Leopards Hill Road, Livingston, Monze & Lake Tanganyika Harbour areas in Zambia. This will be a 25 year Build, Own & operate (BOO) project with a concession to extend or transfer over to the Government at the end date period. The plants will be updated each year with an O&M spend of between $2 million to $3 million resulting in a fully operational plant at the end of the first 25 year period.

Alset Power Company Inc, working closely with both PSECC Ltd, PSECC have gained support from Dr Aditya Parmar at The University of Greenwich – Natural Resources Institute (NRI) and also involved in the project is

Dr Adele-Louise Carter MD Kiteway Ltd, passed partners on an InnovateUK Government funded project with Ghana also supports this project. All partners will ensure the project is Sustainable for Zambia in terms of the Food production aspects using the Carbon Dioxide from our waste plants for food production and Food processing equipment manufacture, possibly using recycled metal could also be manufactured (Hammer Mills for Cassava crops). We are also working with the Ministry of Green Economy, Ministry of Energy & OPPPI in Zambia.

Waste Pickers will have jobs collecting waste together with the new 200 trucks Skips containers, Skip trucks and 500 Gas-powered rickshaws for the new plants – 800 to 1,000 new jobs being created

We first propose the Four Waste plants development programme USD 350 million or Five plants USD 435 million followed immediately by a second twelve x 50MW Solar Farm development programme – USD 700 million – Total for the two development programmes is USD 1.135 Billion or USD 1.21 Billion.

We are working closely with the Ministry of Green Economy and soon the Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) and will be guided as to the next steps to follow in line with Government protocols.

Zambia – waste project Profile Brief has been sent to the Ministry of Green Economy for review in early February 2020, once reviewed and agreed then we engage with the Zambia Development Agency and the Ministry of Green Economy to produce a “Concept Note” if required to be sent to the COP 26 Funding Board for funding of the first stage – the Feasibility Study if our Private Banks will not fund. COP26 Funding has been specifically designed for Countries like Zambia to fund both Feasibility Studies and main Project Finance if Required.

We have been developing this project over a two year period and recently in 2021 tendered for the Waste plants in Zambia and have won that tender and are at Feasibility Study stage and working closely with the Ministry of Energy & OPPPI & PPP departments and are guided by the Ministry of Finance for a speedy delivery process. We now need sign off by the Ministry of Green Economy, Minister of Finance & Minister of Energy and an MoU, Mandate Letter issued. No Zambia Government funding needed & no project finance payback by Government – shareholding in each plant for Zambia Government.

University of Sheffield

“Harvesting the Sun Twice” – Solar PV Electricity production & Food production – Climate Change Mitigation & Food security

This concept could be incorporated into this Zambia project in a second development phase – for every 50MW solar farm we build in Zambia we could have two or more 500KW or larger projects above incorporated into the project. We will work closely with the University once all data has been compiled and conclusions reached.

Solar Farms

Twelve 50MW Solar Farms – one in each of the largest Cities in Zambia – 50MW Solar Farm, will cover 180 acres and utilise solar panels & to maximise efficiency.

A 50MWp solar power plant would produce in 1st year approximately 81 million kWh

Twelve 50MW Solar Farms being proposed for Zambia with Battery storage for 24/7 electricity supply to the population.

It remains important for the Ministry of Green Economy to work with us to ensure projects are sustainable for the Government of Zambia and it’s people. By working with COP26 then a good degree of shareholding (10%) by the Government in each plant is assured enabling a long term revenue stream back to the Government.

ZERO waste ZERO Landfill – We eliminate the landfill so no waste goes to the landfill.  The Landfill waste is also mixed with daily waste generated as a mixed feedstock into our plants.  Over time the Landfill site is cleared. 

Another USD $600 million could be invested to Zambia to Solar Farms, with Battery storage for 24/7 electricity supply in a second development project if the Government wish to investigate this with us and allow us to obtain funding from the new COP26 International Green Climate Fund.

New Educational Centres & Plant

ALSET POWER’s partner, Siemens, along with Bio Carbon Fuels offers this proposal to construct the Lusaka Environmental Education Centre & Bright Future Project with a Total Recovery Facility® (“TRF®”) waste plant inside, which will produce building products and renewable electricity and liquid fuels in the second and third phases of this project. This project information package is intended to provide Lusaka & Zambia with information regarding a proposed Environmental Education Centre that will convert MSW and other waste streams into composite building products and clean electricity and renewable on-road transportation fuels (the “Project”).


The system proposed will initially consume up to 500 tpd in each plant, the County has 2,000 tons of MSW currently available in the Zambia, so four plants can be built with 10% Revenue share for government and 800 jobs created.


This will eliminate the current practice of landfill saving millions of dollars over current practices. The Project will be scalable to take advantage of future growth opportunities expandable to all the MSW in the including agricultural waste and other various waste streams giving Lusaka & Zambia 100% reuse and complete recycling with no need for any waste to go to a landfill and reaching the county’s goal of carbon neutral by 2025.

Zambia – plants located strategically throughout

The New Four Waste plant (s) for Zambia & Educational Centres, working with the Bright Future Project partner. 200 new trucks & 500 Gas-Powered Rickshaws

The Zambia-Waste-Plants Projects profile “Project Brief” document on the About page does indicate US Eximbank funding as a possible funding route once Zambia has restructured the Governments Debt platform but not at the moment.

COP26 funding may be a better option for the Government to consider if funding is not arranged from our Private Banks.

200 New Trucks & 500 Gas-powered Rickshaws to collect waste from Cities, Towns & Villages.

We are working with Mr Ismail Galli, who has over twenty years in the waste collection sector in Lusaka to establish the collection of 2,000 tonnes per day of MSW in Zambia as a feedstock for our plants. New skips, Skip trucks and front loaders will all be supplied.

Our Tender documents were submitted at the end of June 2021 and we are now at Feasibility study stage and need the Green Economy Ministry to issue a letter of support (MoU Mandate).  This website has been produced as a means for the Government to understand further our offer. 

 

These new plants will enable Zambia to transition into the Circular Economy.  100% Recycling of glass, metals, ceramics and Ash with clean Renewable Energy production from Gasification.  Plastic is used for energy production to help meet the need for electricity in Zambia.  

Full funding provision arranged by Alset Power Company Inc with “no need of any funding from the Government of Zambia.


Electricity is produced and new manufacturing factories could be set up making glass and metal  products,, new building blocks for homes manufactured and food production using the waste carbon dioxide from the waste plants.
