In 2007 the Mariannhill landfill gas extraction CDM project was commissioned for Durban Solid Waste, a division of eThekwini Municipality with a capacity to produce 1MW. Since commissioning, the plant has been constantly expanded and maintained by a passionate and specialised team of consultants, civil contractors, mechanical experts and landfill gas monitoring specialists. The project has been a great success story for the landfill gas to electricity industry, and generates monthly revenue in electricity for the Municipality. As a CDM project the facility has also generated nearly 200 000 CERs.
