The Chief Executive Officer of Biogas Technologies Africa Limited, John Afari Idan, says liquid waste should not be seen as a challenge but a venture that can be exploited for positive use.

Speaking at the Sanitation Challenge forum organised by the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources in collaboration with the Community Water and Sanitation Agency in Accra, Mr. Idan noted that it is unfortunate people spend money to discharge liquid waste when it can be used to generate income.

The issue of efficient waste management in the country especially in the urban centers has been highlighted as one of the existing challenges threatening our health and environment.

In Accra, some communities like Abogbloshie, Kaneshie, Makola market, gutters, streams, lagoons and water bodies are choked with garbage, plastic bottles and sachets, solid and liquid waste and fecal material, discharging a foul stench in polluting the environment and causing diseases like cholera and others.

Consequently, Waste management in contemporary years has become a key part of campaign promises of political parties in the country due to the precarious impacts the waste; that could be serving as raw materials, for other products through recycling has on the lives of the citizenry.
