Terence Mathe, 29, Zimbabwe, Co-Founder of Southern Incineration Services (SISCO) PBC
According to the Forbes Africa website, he is the co-founder of Southern Incineration Services, an incineration service for biomedical waste to hospitals, funeral parlors and clinics. He has a full-time job as an auditor and has been running the incineration business for three years, though he plans to leave his job this year and fully take on the business growing it to become Zimbabwe’s largest bio-waste incineration business. SISCO, as it is called, currently runs two incineration plants in the country, which have a combined capacity of handling 220 kg of waste per hour. He has plans of setting up a shop in another part of the country, where they will construct Zimbabwe’s first smokeless, odorless, gas-powered incinerator with a combined capacity of 300 kg per hour, so as to expand operations and effectively conquer the incineration service industry in the country. One of the biggest milestones he has had in the business was when he was called by the EU Election Observation Mission headquarters to provide incineration services for all their election tallies and other confidential information.
