Tushan Methane Recovery Project gets CDM registration

Beijing, Munich | News Release

Today, UPM’s cooperation partner Uniufa obtained CDM registration approval for their Methane Recovery and Utilization Project in Bengbu City Tushan Thermoelectricity Co., Ltd. (UNFCCC Ref. 6988).

The project will contribute to a sustainable development in China by reducing greenhouse gas CH4 through methane recovery. Steam which would be generated by coal-fired boilers will be substituted through biogas boilers (co-fired with coal). Emissions of air pollutants such as CO2, CO, SOx and PM from fossil fuels will be avoided.

The project will install a sophisticated wastewater treatment and methane recovery system. The recovered methane is used to generate steam by eight units of retrofitted biogas co-fired boilers with the total capacity of 1,430t/h.

The project that will reduce 200,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year has been validated by JCI.
