Entrepreneur creates 1,500 jobs with synthetic fuel plant in Kiambu

In Startup

A Kiambu based firm is taking a stab at Nairobi’s garbage with a recycling plant that could turn the city’s plastic waste into synthetic fuel.

Alternative Energy Systems is targeting to recycle 16 tonnes of plastic everyday which could see 1,500 young people employed to deliver plastic waste and 65 direct jobs in technical and managerial positions.

The move could help ease the decaying landscape of the city and help improve the environment. The company led by Rajesh Kent says the factory will open shop in Kenya before expanding to the rest of the continent.

Kenya has been unable to stop the manufacture of plastics such as nylon bags due to lobbying by manufacturers despite pressure from the East African Community.

The plant will set a model to the rest of the continent as rapid urbanization puts pressure on towns.
