Project Details

Title: Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Landfill Gas (LFG) Capture and Combustion Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emission Reductions Project Project Identifier: 9236-1218

Project Description

This landfill gas (LFG) capture project reduces greenhouse gas emissions by using the methane that was previously vented to the atmosphere as fuel for electricity. The project has co-benefits in that the combustion of the methane can supply enough electricity for 1200 homes, it improves local air quality, and also provides additional income for the local municipality. The project was financed partly by carbon offset sales and would not have had proceeded without this financing.
