Fertiliser shortage

Many African countries are expecting to have fertiliser and food shortages in the coming months, due to the war in Ukraine which has caused scarcity in the global fertiliser market, and an unprecedented increase in prices of natural oil and gas. Read how we enhance food security by recycling waste!

Soil Nutrient Depletion

Soil nutrient depletion, due to the intensification of land use for agricultural production, is a serious threat to food security in developing countries. It adversely reduces crop yield and consequently poses a potential threat to global food production and agricultural sustainability. Consumption of crops grown in low-nutrient soil can lead to deficiencies of minerals and micronutrients in humans.

Safisana to the future 

Over the years Safisana has developed into an innovative and leading player in the circular economy and in the global waste management community with growing ambitions for the next decade. After years of testing and optimizing our circular business model, we are currently exploring opportunities to work on co-location with existing wastewater utilities and developing systems with food processing industries. With a number of serious business opportunities in and beyond Ghana, our mission for the next decade is to fast-track our scaling ambitions and to multiply the Safisana ripple. 

To accomodate innovation needed to accelerate, the Safisana Foundation was set up in 2009. Besides innovation, knowledge sharing, capacity building the Foundation's activities focus on maximising the impact of Safisana business. For more information, go to www.safisanafoundation.org
