Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East: Landfill Gas to Electricity Project

Project Nr:

TH3462

Project Title:

Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East: Landfill Gas to Electricity Project

Project Category:

Waste handling and disposal, Energy industries (renewable - / non-renewable sources)

Host Party:

The Kingdom of Thailand

Region:

Province of Nakhon Pathom, District of Kamphaeng Saen


Description

Under project activity, a full integrated Landfill Gas (LFG) collection system will be installed and operated. The extracted gas will be utilized to generate electricity. When the yield of gas is insufficient to supply to the generators, or surplus of LFG happens due to engine maintenance or other site factors, LFG will be sent to an enclosed ground flare where the gas will be flared thus minimise methane emissions and maximising carbon abatement. The emission reduction will be achieved by LFG utilization that otherwise would be released into the atmosphere & Thai grid connected LFG electricity. Indirectly, it may bring new perspective in domestic waste handling in Thailand.

The project activity will use Sindicatum Carbon Capital (SCC) state of the art proprietary LFG gas collection system that has been developed for Asian landfill sites. The design takes into account the different waste composition, climatic conditions and tipping practices of landfill sites in the Asian region when compared with more conventional systems and designs. The LFG system will form an integral part of the overall landfill operation and modifications will be made to the current tipping practice to enhance gas generation and recovery by improving surface water and leachate management. The performance of the LFG design will be continually assessed to ensure optimum LFG recovery, and where required modified to reflect actual site conditions and changes in waste composition and/or daily tipping rates.

Environmental benefits

  • the project will significantly improve local air quality
  • the project will create global benefits through reduced impact upon climate change
  • the project activity will also ensure that correct management of the landfill is carried out as to optimise landfill gas recovery

Social impacts

  • improved air quality, through the reduction of odours, will have a marked impact upon the quality of life for the neighbouring communities
  • the utilisation of a renewable source of energy to generate electricity will contribute to Thailand’s sustainable development
  • collection of the landfill gas will improve the safety aspects of the landfill, reducing the dangers of combustion and explosion of methane pockets

Economic impacts

An additional source of revenue (CER), will help to secure the future and the continued provision of sanitary waste disposal.
