The Laos Government has expressed concerns that landfill sites around the country, have no structured approach to the handling of daily deliveries of municipal solid waste (MSW) and there are no sustainable plans to manage the projected increase in municipal solid waste in the foreseeable future. As part of the Governments Waste Management Strategy, reducing the amount of waste dumped into landfill sites and converting it into renewable fuels, is a key priority.

Through our joint venture company, GEI Mekong, we are a non operating joint venture partner in two waste-to-energy projects in Laos. 


Savannakhet, Laos

GEI MEKONG is part of a joint venture project in Savannakhet, that will initially build a 2-line all-diesel WtE facility that will process municipal solid waste and convert it into EN590 grade diesel. It is planned that in the facilities third year, there will be an option to upgrade the facility with an electricity module to produce electricity.
