Turning Wastewater Sludge Green

The UNDP-CEDRO project is currently finalizing the assessment of the bioenergy potential from wastewater sludge in Lebanon in partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources.


The study aims to undergo a feasibility assessment to identify the wastewater treatment plants that meet the conditions to implement an anaerobic digestion and elaborate the related technical specifications.


Clémentine Labreveux, the representative of Amane Energy, the French company that conducted the study, will present the major findings of the report in “Session 1B- Unveiling New Untapped Potential” at the Beirut Energy Forum 2012.
