Biogas Cogeneration Project Senegal

Project Rationale

The Government of Senegal (GOS) has requested GGGI’s assistance in promoting investments in waste-to-energy projects. As of 2013, energy production from industrial biogas sources only accounts for 0.04% of Senegal’s total energy production. GGGI is supporting the scaling up of an existing biogas cogeneration plant utilizing slaughterhouse waste. This project is aligned with the Plan Senegal Emergent (PSE) of the Government and addresses two main components which are waste management and energy for productive use.

The proposed project scope comprises the installation of a 275-kW biogas cogeneration plant at an industrial facility. Waste residues from the production process at “Société de Gestion des Abattoirs du Senegal” (SOGAS) slaughterhouse will be treated anaerobically to generate heat and electricity. Domestic fuel pellets will also be produced from the slurry by-product.

Delivery strategy

PROJECT OUTPUTS FOR 2017-18

  • A 275-kW biogas cogeneration plant financed.
  • Cogeneration potential and appropriate business models to replicate across two other waste sectors identified, including identified sources of finance.
  • Identifying other sources of organic waste for biogas production;
  • Developing a clear roadmap for the development of waste-to-energy in Senegal;

PROJECT OUTCOMES FOR 2017-18

  • Affordable, reliable and renewable electricity and heat to supply the SOGAS industrial facility,
  • Manage and valorize waste residues that were previously disposed of in an unorganized manner.
  • Production of domestic fuel wood pellets

Planned Results

The project will specifically contribute to the achievements of SDGs goals #7 which is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy, and the Sustainable Development Goal #9 which aims at promoting sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation and PSE objectives by:

  • Production of 1,927 MWh electricity per year from renewable source;
  • Production of 2,505 thermal MWh per year from renewable source;
  • Avoidance of the pollution of Hann bay of more than 150 m3/day of wastewater;
  • Avoidance of 3,103 tons of CO2 per year;
  • Avoidance of emissions of 480 tons of methane per year;
  • Reduction of deforestation with the production of 8,488 tons of fuel pellets for domestic cook stoves annually.
