ADANA LANDFILL WASTE MANAGEMENT PROJECT
Adana Landfill Gas Collection and Energy Utilisation Project is located at the Adana Landfill in the city of Adana, in the South Mediterranean Region of Turkey.
The landfill receives the daily amount of waste of approximately 1000-1500 tonnes. The proposed project involves the covering of the landfill with soil, the installation of a gas extraction system, the installation of other treatment units, and the installation of gas engines to generate electricity to feed to the national grid.
“Landfill Gas Collection and Utilization Project” and “Anaerobic Digestion of Municipal Solid Waste” utilized methane gas to generate electricity with the installed 15.6 MW capacity. This contributed to decrease in emission in the power sector and reduced the dependency on imported fuel for electricity generation.
