Env.&Forestry PS Susan Mochache listens to a presentation from Toyota Tsusho E.A ltd representatives in areas of waste management and Hybrid vehicles. The company chairman Dennis Awori was the company’s team leader.

Increased amounts of medical and hazardous waste in the country compels the government to urgently construct a disposal plant, the Principal Secretary for Environment and Forestry M/S Susan Mochache has said.

She confirmed that her Ministry would expedite the process of finalizing land acquisition to pave way for construction of the plant through the support of the Japanese Government at a cost sh. 1.2 billion.

The PS noted that waste management was a priority for the Ministry of Environment and Forestry considering that various sectors of the economy were daily churning out tons of waste but the disposal methods were inadequate.

M/S Mochache was speaking in her office during a courtesy call in her office by the Chairman of Toyota Tsusho East Africa Limited Mr. Dennis   Awori who presented various activities the company undertakes in the country and the region.

Toyota Tsusho trades in Kenya as Toyota Kenya and is involved in waste management and Hybrid Vehicles that were environmental friend through their low carbon emission.

The PS said that the government appreciated the Hybrid vehicles technology which was a step closer to the electric vehicle, the anticipated most friendly environmental innovation for low carbon emission.

During the meeting Mr. Awori, a former Kenya Ambassador to Japan confirmed that his company would participate in the November 26th -28th Global Blue Economy Conference to be held in Mombasa.

The company will exhibit maritime equipment and waste management technology that promoted the environment.
