My name is Emmanuelle WEMEYI and I am a Geotechnical Engineer with over 7 years experience in Africa and the USA. I earned my master degree in civil engineering at UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago) and another Master degree in Africa (Cameroon). I live in Chicago and my company is working on one of my innovative projects: Peat as Source of Energy in Africa (the area study is Cameroon). The main idea is to use peat properties to supply electricity. Consumers are daily exposed to outage problems in Africa and this project will be a good fit for the population and a good opportunity for the financial institute to increase its business. This is a long-term project because the production is estimated at about more than 30 years.
