Project Location: Turkey, Çankırı Province, Şabanözü District, Gürpınar Village
Methodology: AM0073: GHG emission reductions through multi-site manure collection and treatment in a central plant –Version 1.0.
Description: The use of traditional energy sources is finite and expected to be exhausted in the coming years, so humanity is turning to new and renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and biomass. Biogas production through anaerobic biotechnology is one method of obtaining energy from biomass. Anaerobic digestion processes have been applied to industrial and agricultural waste for 25 years, producing clean energy through the conversion of organic waste into methane gas in an oxygen-free environment. Biogas plants are important for the country’s economy and waste management. Bekmezci Biogas Plant (4,818 MWm – 4,680 MWe) will use animal waste and organic waste from farms in the region to produce biogas, heat and electrical energy, and a rich organic fermented product. The project aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent methane emissions. The project is estimated to help reduce the carbon emissions average by 88,251 tons annually.
