Project type: Resource recovery
Standards: Gold Standard
This Gold Standard project involves the capture and combustion of landfill gas at a landfill site in Ankara, to supply clean electricity to the local grid. Prior to the project, municipal solid waste was received at the site from 3.6 million inhabitants in Ankara, the Turkish capital, and the uncovered landfill allowed methane gas to vent directly into the atmosphere. An innovative, first of its kind application in Turkey, the project not only collects methane, but is aiming to be a ‘zero waste’ site by diverting fresh waste into a bio digester to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill.
