Adding Value to Plastic Waste in Cameroon

Analysing the impact of plastic waste in Yaoundé to explore potential recycling solutions​

This project aims to diagnose the current management of plastic waste in the capital Yaoundé and to characterise this waste in order to know the different typologies and the respective proportions. Then, the different ecological impacts of this plastic waste will be studied and solutions applicable to the local context will be proposed. What is special about this project is that four master's theses and one doctoral thesis are linked to it.
