Enviromental Activities

Mumias Sugar Company Limited is involved in various Environmental Management initiatives in line with her Enviromental policy. The Company’s diverse o[operations ranging from sugar cane farming to sugar manufacture and sales can have significant impacts on the environment unless various conservation, prevention and mitigation measures are put in place. The main initiatives are:

  • Water Quality Standards

Four waste treatment plants have been installed and are well maintained. They discharge treated effluent of legally acceptable quality. Water drawn from River Nzoia is conservatively used. 

  • Solid Waste Management

Bagasse, the main industrial solid waste, is used for steam and electricity generation. The new Co-generation plant is a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project which qualifies for carbon credit. Domestic and office solid waste is disposed on National Environmental Management Authority licensed (NEMA) sites. Two incinerators handle medical waste.

  • Air Quality Standards

Scrubbers have been installed on the Co-generation plant boiler to filter airborne emissions.

  • Occupational Health & Safety

The company has an elaborate Occupational Health and Safety Management system. It has a back up of a comprehensive written safety manual.

  • Environmental Health

The company has an Environmental Health Management system focusing on Pest Control, Waste Management, Food Safety, Premises Safety, Potable water Management and Communicable Diseases Control.

  • Bio-Diversity

Bio-diversity is very much appreciated. Under the forestation programme the company purchases 100,000 tree seedlings from farmers and distributes them to the farmers, employees and local institutions free of charge. This conserves the environment and also empowers the local people economically through tree seedlings development. Conservation of indigenous trees, wildlife and unique plants is supported. The company develops flower seedlings and issues them of free of charge to employees, local institutions and farmers.

  • Socio-Cultural Impacts

The company supports various social activities in the community. It constructed Nabongo Cultural Centre in memory of King Mumia Nabongo. It has installed street lights in Mumias and Kakamega. It offers employment and business opportunities to the local people.
