The Mauritian group Green Waste Energy decided to opt for the method of gasification which is more environmentally friendly to dispose of solid waste without resorting to incineration.
 
This method is thus used to transform organic waste among others such as plastics and rubber to synthesis gas.
 
This project approved by the Government of Mauritius in September 2013 is expected to cost about 8.75 billion rupees. *
 
Two processing centers will be built in the coming years and should drain in their wake some 150 jobs in Mauritius.
 
In addition, the synthesis gas will be used by the two centers to generate electricity.
 
A contract between the Green Waste Energy Group and the Mauritian National Electricity Company (CEB) has already been signed for a period of twenty years.
 
*One euro roughly equivalent to 41 rupees
