energy production from landfill gas in Kömürcüoda Landfill Sites
These projects provide reduction of carbon emissions income in addition to electricity sales. The systems established in scope of the project generate “carbon credit” to be sold in the international volunteer carbon markets since they burn the methane gas that is 21 times more hazardous than carbon dioxide to the global warming and convert them into CO2. Start year 2007
