Typha Cenia Nigeria Limited, a Port Harcourt, Rivers State-based company in partnership with Ecoteko Finland, is to build three waste to energy power plants in Ondo state that will generate 7.8 megawatts of power each per day, Vanguard reports.
The Executive chairman of Typha Cenia, Dr. Solomon Edebiri disclosed this in Ikare, Ondo state, while speaking at a town-hall meeting organised by the office of the Special Assistant on Political Matters to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Mr. Austin Pelemo in Ikare. Dr. Edebiri disclosed that under the arrangement, the government is not expected to contribute any money into building the plants which are expected to be located in each of the three senatorial districts of the state.

Also speaking, the special assistant to the Governor on Political matters Hon.
