Waste Summit 2020
Waste is created in every country. In Cambodia, robust economic development coupled with a rapidly growing population mean the amount of waste generated in urban center, particularly Phnom Penh, is growing dramatically. The capital city generates around 4.09 million tons per year of solid waste, 55.3% of the total waste comes from household, followed by hotels/guesthouses (16.7%), restaurants (13.8%), markets (7.5%), shops (5.4%) and offices (1.4%). Could these wastes be turned into energy? Cambodia, apart from waste management issue, has also suffer from significant energy shortage. The country has among the highest electricity prices in the regions, especially in rural areas which could cost up to USD 1 per kWh. Given Cambodia’s alarming level of waste production and the rising concern over energy access, the process of turning waste to energy could be the future solution for the country.
