Poop To Fuel Pellets
As the elderly population in Japan increases, companies there have developed technology that turns adult diapers (and child diapers) into sterile, odorless, concentrated, portable pellets that can be used for fuel and construction (http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20004020-1.html, http://www.japantoday.com/category/lifestyle/view/used-adult-diapers-get-new-life-as-fuel).
Could there be a cost-effective way to apply such an approach in Ghana? Imagine your household toilet, public toilet, or waste collector also providing you with easy to use/transport fuel pellets on-site. Given that the majority of Ghana’s household energy use (cooking) comes from wood/charcoal, this could also help combat Ghana’s deforestation and lower carbon emissions, in addition to addressing sanitation issues. Note that unprocessed animal dung is already being used for cooking in Ghana, Africa, India, etc.
Who could implement this?
