About Sanergy

Sanergy is an award-winning company based in Nairobi, Kenya. We implement a circular economy model to sustainably manage sanitation and organic waste generated in cities. Using technologies developed in-house, we upcycle the waste into insect-based protein for animal feed, organic fertilizer, and biomass fuel. We operate the largest organics recycling plant in East Africa. Watch here! Across all of our operations, we achieve significant carbon offsets and removal. 

Operational since 2011, Sanergy collects and treats over 50,000T of waste per year, and successfully sells its agricultural end-products to farmers in over 40 counties in Kenya, who see improved yields and increased incomes. We are already offsetting more than 23,000T of carbon per year. At the same time, we have built a team of over 300 employees from diverse backgrounds who solve diverse problems, but all embody the drive, creativity, teamwork, and passion that make us achieve our goals. We have big expansion plans – with goals to expand across Africa and Asia in the next 6 years and offset 500,000T of carbon emissions per year in that time. 

For our work, we have been recognized by the Gates Foundation as a Goalkeeper for  the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals; by Fast Company as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world doing social good, and by the Earthshot Prize and Food Planet Prize for our innovative circular economy approach.
