16 MW Landfill Gas Power Plants

This 16 MW landfill gas power plant consists of 2 x 8 MW power generation and abatement schemes located in Kamphaeng Saen District, Nakhon Pathom Province. The projects involve the capture and combustion of methane gas produced from the biodegradation of organic municipal waste (6,000 tonnes of solid waste or 2,700 tonnes of CO2e, per day) from Bangkok’s largest landfill, which is also one of the largest landfills in Asia.

The two projects were registered with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in January 2011, and combined are expected to generate carbon credits or Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) of 750,000  per annum or 5.2 million over their lifetimes.
