Short Bio
Peter Ssekajja is an Industrial Chemist with eleven years of professional experience in promoting and implementing Resource Efficiency and Cleaner Production (RECP) in enterprises. He graduated in Masters of Science in Environment and Natural Resources and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Chemistry (from Makerere University Kampala). He has been trained in RECP, Green Industry Pathways towards the Industry of the future, Industrial Symbiosis, Environmental Management System, Chemical Leasing and 2016 Special Training on South-South Cooperation of climate change; Seminar on Addressing Climate Change – Pathways and Implementation of Carbon Emissions Reduction. International short-term courses and training in; Sustainable development, Climate change, Industrial symbiosis, Green Industry, and Human Capacity Development Intervention have exposed him to international experts in various fields and particularly enhanced his experience in Resource Efficient Cleaner Production. His working language is English and is a highly motivated and creative team-player who puts attention to details in order to achieve results.  I have worked with various enterprises in different sectors, which are more vulnerable to climate change, to support them in adoption of Climate change adaptation measures. Such measures include promotion Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production, Enhancing Resource Productivity and Environmental performance of enterprises through the concept of Industrial Symbiosis, Environmental Management systems, Demand side management of water use through promotion of water efficient techniques and practices and Chemical Leasing. This has greatly contributed to a transition towards a climate resiliant industrial sector. For example, provision of technical support to 60 enterprises in carrying out detailed Industrial symbiosis assessments resulted in identification of 131 potential Industrial symbiotic synergies, 45 of which, have so far been implemented. These implemented synergies have resulted in exchange of 67,309 tons of wastes among to landfills. The enterprises have been able to save USD 1,532,663.00 on waste disposal and eliminate CO2 emissions amounting to 320tones/year. The symbiotic synergies triggered private sector investment of USD 1,408,078.00 in implementation of the 45 industrial symbiotic synergies.
