OCCE Commends BTNL’s Innovations in Advancing Circular Economy Initiatives 

The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Climate Change and Circular Economy, Mrs. Titi Oshodi, has commended the management and staff of Biofil Technologies Nigeria Limited (BTNL) for their innovative approach to sustainable construction, particularly their utilisation of recycled plastics to fabricate eco-friendly homes. 

She gave this commendation during a working tour of the BTNL facility in Shangisha, Magodo. She commended the model house BTNL constructed entirely from plastic blocks, noting that such innovations are critical to the growth of the sector in Lagos and pivotal to the Mission 5050 project of the OCCE. OCCE Mission 5050 seeks to create 50,000 jobs and reduce carbon emissions by 50%. 

“The need to support and encourage businesses like BTNL is why we are here today and were impressed by what we are seeing and what the BNTL team is doing to grow the circular economy in Lagos.” Mrs. Oshodi noted  

“Our goal is to see more businesses like BTNL develop and scale. It is the only way we can demonstrate the dual capacity of the circular economy to create jobs and reduce the carbon emissions that threaten our world. So we will continue to work with stakeholders like BTNL and ensure that they grow. It is the vision of Mr. Governor to ensure that Lagos is a zero-carbon city by 2050. We believe that the circular economy is the most viable means to that end, and we are here for all businesses like BTNL that are keying into that vision.” 

Speaking during the visit, the MD/CEO, Ibukun Taiwo, thanked the special adviser for graciously accepting to visit the facility and for her unwavering support. He said, “We are grateful for Mrs. Oshodi’s encouraging visit to our facility and her kind commendations. These mean a lot to us, and they will further fuel our determination to continue pioneering sustainable solutions that will make our earth safer, create more jobs for Lagosians, and create wealth for our people. We look forward to partnering with the OCCE, and we are confident that through these partnerships, we can significantly impact the circular economy ecosystem in Lagos.”
