Daesung Energy & Environment Co., Ltd. collects 50 million ㎥ of gas from the site and turns it to a medium quality gas. The refined gas is supplied to the Daegu branch of Korea District Heating Corp., as a main generator of heating for 15,000 households.
With this contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the project was certified as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The Bangcheon-ri Landfill Gas-to-Energy project has improved air quality by reducing greenhouse gases equivalent to 310,000 tons of CO2 per year. The profit from selling Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) amounts to some 6 billion KRW per year.
