Project Brief

Çarşamba Landfill Gas to Electricity Project, developed by the ITC-KA Enerji Üretim Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş.” is located at the Çarşamba landfill site in Samsun Province of Turkey. The landfill receives the waste of approximately 250,000 people living in Çarşamba, Terme, Ayvacık and Salıpazarı Municipalities of the Samsun Municipality. The landfill site is estimated to receive around 304,891 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) till 2016 and 610,767 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) till 2021. Approximately 64% of this waste consists of organic materials like pulp, paper & card-board, food, garden waste and other organic waste. The average daily amount of waste landfilled is estimated to be around 141ton/day between the year 2010 to 2020 and 119 ton/day since 2021. The objective of the project activity is to reduce/limit the environmental impacts from the existing and future land filled waste. The project activity includes implementation of a Land Fill Gas (LFG) extraction and utilization system (for the purpose of power generation). The successful implementation of this project activity is considered viable with the revenue from carbon financing.

Additional Information

The estimated annual emission reductions for the project activity is 12,393 tCO2e.
