MSConex is a consulting firm, founded in 2013, with a focus on waste, energy, water, wastewater, and the environment. The firm combines sound financial and economic expertise with technical environmental waste, wastewater, and energy know-how in order to define, adapt and apply solutions to the specific challenges in North and West Africa.
Manfred Schweda and MSConex have conducted waste-to-energy technical and financial feasibility studies for EBRD, EIB, UNIDO/CTCN, and private industrial companies. MSConex is a consultant in a consortium with GGGI (Seoul) and First Climate (Zurich) for the KliK Foundation’s Organic Waste-to-Energy mitigation activity, a Moroccan national program embedded within the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development. The Organic Waste-to-Energy Program shall generate ITMOs/carbon credits, thereby rendering a number of organic waste-to-energy/digester/anaerobic digestion investment projects financially feasible. Creating the market structure to support waste and energy projects will demonstrate an operational model that can be scaled up on the continent.
The consultant covers adjacent technical expertise in areas such as decarbonization strategies for industry, leachate avoidance, and treatment, landfill waste issues, greenhouse gas emissions on landfills, methane capture, and utilization, desulfurization of biogas, cogeneration technologies, steam generation, recovery of carbon dioxide, and hydrogen applications.
Based in Rabat, MSConex understands the Moroccan energy and waste management landscape, and the green hydrogen and ammonia opportunity for Morocco. MSConex has conducted industry sectorial reports and is collaborating with trade and industry bodies, ministries, and banks.
MSConex wholly owns generizon, also based in Rabat, the commercial and technical services entity providing turnkey anaerobic digestion facilities, cogeneration engines, desulfurization plants, and other equipment along the entire biogas, waste, and wastewater value chain.
