news item image

A biogas power facility has been inaugurated in South Tehran Wastewater Treatment Plant, reported Tehran Times. It commenced operation in the presence of Energy Minister Ali-Akbar Mehrabian today (18 April).
The plant can generate up to 15 million kilowatt hours of electricity with two combined heat and power (CHP) generators, which have a total nominal capacity of 2.4 megawatt hours.
The plant will collect the biogas from wastewater treatment, and generate electricity and heat from it, and so avoid the consumption of fossil fuel. It will also prevent the production and release of methane gas.
Implementation of this project will aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 75,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
