A common problem among developing countries is the lack of appropriate institutional mechanisms and technological advancement to address the proliferation of solid waste generation. Rapid urbanization, accelerated population growth and inadequate resources constrains the ability of developing countries to manage waste collection, disposal services and repurposing was for usable energy [C3]. Consequently, these inadequacies results in numerous social and environmental ills. ACME aims to capitalize on the economic opportunity to leverage and promote technological advancement to transform waste into sustainable energy for developing countries. The pursuit of Turn-key solutions to convert waste into valuable resources (e.g. clean water, thermal energy, electricity etc.) in order to promote healthy environment is one of our highest values.
