The Problem

The problems faced by the surrounding communities and businesses are:

  • Unstable electricity and frequent outages result in loss of productivity for the industries and damages electrical appliances of surrounding communities.
  • Vast amount of the methane emissions as the wastewater treatment was done through open lagoons, as a result, releasing all methane emissions into the atmosphere.
  • Hydrogen sulfide is a hazardous gas and exposure may cause ocular, respiratory, neurological, metabolic and reproductive effects.
