Case Study: Landfill gas to Electricity in Johannesburg

The Johannesburg landfill gas to energy project, initially conceived as a carbon reduction project, aims to mitigate greenhouse gases from five landfill sites in Johannesburg, through converting its landfill gas to electricity. The five sites have a combined potential capacity of 18.6 MW of electricity, and the project will be by far the largest municipal-driven renewable energy development in South Africa to date.
