About

This project focuses on one such community on the outskirts of one of Pakistan’s largest cities. We have partnered with an existing school and health clinic on this site with the plan to install a small-scale waste-to-energy generator that can power the school and health clinic, enabling both to expand their services for the community. With this electricity, the school can expand its capacity to include more students, provide vocational training to adults, and power computers, while the health clinic can improve their services and preserve temperature-sensitive medications such as antibiotics. Excess electricity can also be used to help community members develop income-generating activities and community-owned businesses and micro-enterprises, thus expanding their skills and giving them the tools, opportunities, and confidence that they need to participate and succeed in society.

Em[POWER]’s model of change is centered on inexpensive bio-digester technology and low British Thermal Unit (BTU) based generators. The equation is simple: organic waste equals methane. Methane equals electricity. And electricity equals cash—through the host of value-added businesses that energy access will provide to this under-served community. This will provide better access to education, improve local health, and increase worker wages while reducing greenhouse gas emissions (methane is 21 times worse for climate change than carbon dioxide). This model is applicable to landfill communities around the world.
