Cambridge Industries is a holistic waste management and renewable energy generation company, delivering leading technologies to address waste and energy deficiencies in Africa. They produce clean/green energy while solving waste-related problems by reducing the amount of waste going to landfills. Their goal is to turn one of Africa's most challenging social problems, the management of waste, into a source of new wealth. Cambridge’s 'Green Vision' is a comprehensive, sustainable, clean, and renewable power generation and waste management system designed specifically for African cities. Effective power generation and waste management are among the principal challenges faced throughout Africa, particularly in its rapidly urbanizing cities.
