Nasco Feeling Minds, an NGO operating in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District has announced for the establishment of a biomass power plant to be situated at Sawla, Savannah region.

As part of the Renewable Energies For Africa; Effective Valorization Of Agri-Food Wastes (REFFECT Africa) project funded by the European Commission, REFFECT AFRICA will demonstrate an innovative and sustainable energy solution based on the valorization of biomass waste from agriculture and the food industry through biomass gasification.

The off-grid plant in the Sawla-Tuna-Kaba District in the Savannah Region of Ghana would be the first of its kind in West Africa.

Applications of energy from the plant’s state-of-the-art valorization technology include bioenergy, bio-fertilizer, biochar and water treatment/production for surrounding schools, hospitals and farmers.

The five-year project would commence in November 2021 with preliminary research in the district.

NASCO Feeding Minds enlisted the help of the University of Energy and Natural Resources in Sunyani as research and implementation partners.

A delegation of the Nasco Feeding Minds from its offices in Spain and Ghana, led by the founding president Ousman Umar, met the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Elvis Asare-Bediako and management as part of discussions towards the commencement of the project.

As part of considerations towards a sustainable partnership, the Executive Director of Nasco Feeding Minds, Banasco Seidu Nuhu, petitioned the university to support the training of students in the Sawla community who would be crucial to the maintenance of the plant and research by offering scholarships to students from the Sawla District.

The University of Energy and Natural Resources was delighted to offer five scholarships for five consecutive years to students from the Sawla-Tuna-Kaba District towards both undergraduate and post-graduate programs in engineering, natural resources and energy.

The first cohort for the scholarship would be starting from the next academic year.

“This scholarship would go a long way to advancing our mission of feeding the minds of young people in the district.

We are overwhelmed by the commitment of the university towards the project and are grateful to the European Commission for funding such an impactful endeavor which will create jobs and offer opportunities,” Nasco Feeding Mind’s Executive Director Banasco Seidu Nuhu indicated.
