WAF to receive carbon credits for Green House Gas Reduction

August 6, 2018 10:30 pm

The Water Authority is eligible to receive its first set of carbon credits.

This is a result of the Kinoya-based Gas Flare Project reducing the methane gas emissions produced at the Kinoya Treatment Plant.

The carbon credits are the direct result of the Authority’s ability to trap inside a dome and burn off methane gases generated by the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter in sludge at the Kinoya Plant.

General Manager Special Projects, Taitusi Vakadravuyaca says the Authority is the first South Pacific wastewater utility to use its wastewater system to reduce methane greenhouse emissions.

Since the Authority began burning gas in 2015, the emissions have been reduced by 22,000 tonnes per year.

The project was successfully registered under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), last year, with WAF submitting its first set of data to UNFCCC as per the required CDM guidelines.
