Launching of Fortifer in Ghana: Innovating Sanitation to feed the nation

Significant milestone reached!
A new compost plant has opened in the greater Accra Region in Ghana which recycles human and food waste and turns it into Fortifer, a safe, nutrient rich fertilizer. Established in partnership with the Tema Metropolitan Assembly and Jekora Ventures Ltd, JVL Fortifer Compost Plant builds on years of research done by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) to simultaneously improve sanitation services and food security through private-public partnerships. The plant will treat 12,500 cubic meters of fecal sludge and 700 tonnes of organic food waste in order to produce 500 tons of Fortifer in the next year.
