Today, UPM’s cooperation partner Uniufa obtained CDM registration approval for their Methane Recovery and Utilization Project of Shandong Richeast Biotechnology Co., Ltd. in China (UNFCCC Ref. 5879).
The project will contribute to a sustainable development in China by reducing greenhouse gas CH4 through methane recovery. Electricity which would be purchased from the North China Power Grid will partially be substituted through self-generated electricty.
The project will employ reactors as a sequential wastewater treatment system for alcohol wastewater treatment. The water from the anaerobic system will be further treated in the subsequent aerobic treatment and other wastewater treatment facilities in order to meet the local wastewater discharge standards. In addition, the project will install a boiler and a biogas-fuelled generator to produce steam and electricity by utilizing biogas recovered from the anaerobic reactors.
The project has been validated by RINA Services S.p.A.
