PDD Title Project Description

ACP Thermal Harvesting™ Project

Application Form

The ACP Thermal Harvesting™ Project envisages the construction and operation of a Waste Energy Recovery System (WERS) with the installed capacity of 5 MW that utilize waste heat of the hot water stream to the existing Anglo Converter Plant (ACP) High Pressure Cooling Water System for the generation of electricity.

The proposed project activity will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 608 (tCO2e) per annum for a 10 year crediting period.

PDD Title Project Description

City of Cape Town Treatment of Organic Waste Streams CDM Projects

Application Form

The project objective is to capture the biogas produced by the anaerobic digestion (AD) of sludge at waste water treatment works. The biogas produced will be combusted to generate “green energy” (electricity and heat) on site, at waste water treatment facilities, within the project geographical boundary, i.e. Republic of South Africa.

It is expected that the project will achieve an average annual emission reduction of 57 067 tCO2 over the seven-year crediting period.

PDD Title Project Description

Eastern Cape renewable energy for household project

Application Form

The objective of the project is to replace non-renewable fuel for cooking with solutions based on efficient and renewable solutions. It will replace the use of wood and charcoal for cooking, with locally and sustainably produced ethanol as cooking fuel. The project will be implemented in small scale with about 1000 households and will gradually grow to include a maximum of 30 000 households. The initial 1000 households is expected to be included in the project in January 2014 and the number of project participating households is expected to reach 30 000 by January 2016.

It is expected that the project will achieve an average annual emission reduction of 150 000 tCO2 over the seven-year crediting period.
