New partnership for Middle East biogas project signed
A biogas project in Lebanon operated by environmental solutions provider Averda International has attached a technology provider to get it moving forward.
An on-site power facility at a landfill site in Naameh will transform waste into energy via a GE Jenbacher J312 landfill gas engine. It has the potential to generate 637kW of renewable electricity and go towards eliminating the equivalent of 12,400 tonnes of CO2.
The project will be at pilot stage to begin with and expand to utilise the whole Naameh site capacity if successful.
‘The Naameh project is a landmark that reflects our focus on adopting environmentally sustainable alternatives and inspiring similar applications for other projects,’ Hani Wazzan, Averda supply chain director, was quoted as saying. ‘The twin challenges of landfill management are being addressed through this collaboration.’
