Scaling out the Recovery of Nutrients and Organic Matter from Faecal Sludge for Food Production in Ghana: From Waste to Food (WaFo).
This project is being executed on behalf of the International Water Management Institute to produce and sell Fortifer, an organic fertilizer product made from fecal sludge co-composted with sawdust or municipal solid waste (organic). This project is being funded by the Gates Foundation and Jekora Ventures was selected as the production company for the project after a rigorous application process. This project is currently at the phase of breaking ground for the construction of the compost plant within the Tema Metropolis in the Greater Accra Region.
Fortifer is matured compost (well-composted) produced from dewatered fecal sludge (DFS) and sawdust or market waste. With these combinations the product is able to attain a Nitrogen (N) level of 2.0%. An enrich version has been developed, increasing the N to 3%. The composting process is well monitored and controlled to ensure the production of quality and safe compost.
