Furthermore, it will be able to “screen solid waste such as used sanitary napkins, nappies, etc. from the wastewater in and around Accra using state-of-the-art technology,” explains Florence Cobbold, SSGL’s Managing Director.

Similar plants in the West African country

According to Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, the Executive Chairman of Jospong Group of Companies (JGC), work on the Kumasi Liquid waste treatment plant is almost complete and it will soon serve the waste treatment needs of the people residing within the Ashanti region.

He also revealed that construction works for similar facilities in the Western, Tema, and Tamale regions have begun and that the capacities to be built will help receive all manner of liquid wastes and prevent indiscriminate dumping of waste which is a health hazard.

JGC is one of the most diversified holdings companies in Ghana operating in the Waste Management, ICT, and Banking as well as Automobile and Equipment sectors. It is also the mother company of SSGL.
