Scaling up waste-to-energy activities in the Peruvian agricultural sector

Agricultural activities contribute significantly to Peru’s economy, some examples being the sugar cane industry, rice or coffee plantations and cotton. Substantial amounts of wastes occur and in most cases are disposed of locally, either burnt or left to rot on the fields.
The objective of the NAMA is to promote the scaling up of self-supply waste-to-energy technologies in the Peruvian agricultural sector to contribute to rural sustainable development and to global climate change mitigation. The NAMA wants to facilitate farmers’ and agro-industries’ access to capital to cover (up-front) investment costs of self-supply technologies, build capacity of beneficiaries of the NAMA programme to establish, operate and maintain technologies and infrastructure to ensure their efficient and long-term use, and to promote the establishment of a waste-to-energy services and technology market in Peru.
