Plastic in Economy
Similar to global context, waste management issue is quite challenging in many municipalities and districts of Cambodia as well as in Phnom Penh Capital. However, we are facing lots of difficulties to manage it in a proper manner. Just in Phnom Penh, the amount of collected waste amount is about 3,000 ton/day in 2019. This is a very concerned data for open dumping of those mixed waste to a landfill which would create many environmental impacts and lost many waste-to-resource recovery options to promote circular economy in Cambodia.
Waste Summit 2020
Waste to Energy
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.

Waste Summit 2019
Smart waste business models and innovations for a clean Cambodia!
If you’re buying a meal in Cambodia to takeaway you can expect to get a plastic box with food in it, a plastic set of cutleries all packed up in a plastic bag. Your drink is going to be in a plastic cup with a plastic straw which is wrapped in plastic. But that’s still not it, the plastic cup will be put in another small plastic bag for you to hold. So, it seems quite logical, that an average Cambodian household uses 12 plastic bags a day, doesn’t it? Almost half of them will be burnt later and the rest ends up in the sea. With one of the fastest growing economy and a growing consumer market, Cambodia is generating significant amounts of waste. Phnom Penh alone already produces 3000 tons of garbage per day and the issue of waste will be more important every day. The landfills are being filled up more and more and manmade waste mountains will be the norm. But as technologies are getting more and more advanced, many start-ups are coming up with new innovative ideas to counteract.
