UM PhD student solves major waste collection problem in Ghana

Through his research, Kwaku Oduro-Appiah, PhD candidate at Maastricht University, has succeeded in making a spectacular contribution to solving the problems of waste collection and processing in Accra, the capital of Ghana. By experimenting with better cooperation between the various informal parties, the municipality of Accra is now able to manage 90% of the waste flows. This yields an annual saving of 20 million dollars. Kwaku Oduro-Appiah will receive his PhD on 2 September for his research at Maastricht University.
