A. 3) Activity:

Item

Please fill in if applicable

General description:

The project mitigates methane emissions from landfills by extraction, flaring and utilizing landfill gas. The gas would otherwise be emitted directly into the atmosphere. To this end extraction equipment, interconnecting pipework and a compressor station have been installed.

Type of project:a)

fugitive gas capture

Location (exact, e.g. city, region,

state):

1: Landfill Daskovka, Serpuchov district, Moscow

2: Landfill Kargashino, Mytishi district, Moscow

Activity starting date:

1994

Expected activity ending date:

1997

Stage of activity:b)

in progress

Lifetime of activity if different from ending date:c)

10 years

Technical data:d)

From waste amounts and age of waste the potential ladfill gas production (at present and in the future) was calculated. With the extraction equipment the extracted amounts and quality of the gas are registered. With these data the reduction in emission of methane is calculated. In addition landfill gas will be utilized for electricity production. These quantities will be registered separately by gas and kWh meters.

a) For example, using Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) classification: energy efficiency; renewable energy; fuel switching; forest preservation, restoration or reforestation; afforestation; fugitive gas capture; industrial processes; solvents; agriculture; waste disposal or bunker fuels.

b) Circle the appropriate option.

c) Methodological work will be required to define lifetime of activities.

d) Methodological work will be required to determine for each type of activity what the minimum data requirements are.

Describe briefly how costs are determined:

After installation of extraction equipment some revenues are collected. Costs per avoided ton of CH4 are calculated as an accumulated estimate by determining total costs (minus revenues) over a period of 10 years and the total amount of methane extracted during this period. The conversion into costs per ton COx equivalent is based upon the lastest IPCC estimates for the direct global warming potential for CH4.

A. 5) Mutually agreed assessment procedures:

Describe the procedures, including name of organizations involved):

Geopolis, the Russian counterpart, is responsible for registration and collection of extraction data from metering and monitoring equipment installed at both landfills. The collected data consist of amounts of gas extracted and flared (in m3) and the methane content of the gas. Additionally, the quantities of gas used for electricity production will be registered (in m3) and the amount of electricity produced (measured in kWh).

At two times during the monitoring period a determination of the remaining gas emissions will take place. This is done by measuring gas flow and gas concentrations in the covering layer of the landfill. By using a large number of points the overall emission can be calculated. The first measurement refers to the baseline situation. The second to the situation with gas extraction in operation.

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organizations mentioned is reported under

_ suspended

_ terminated earlier

B. 2) This report is a joint report:
_ Yes, forward copy of agreement/endorsement by the designated national authorities involved

_ No

B. 3) General short comment by the government(s) if applicable:

C. Compatibility with and supportiveness of national economic development and socio-economic and environment priorities and strategies

Describe (to the extent possible) how the activity is compatible with and supportive of national economic development and socio-economic and environment priorities and strategies

The project contributes to the national and regional willing in raising waste managment practices to a higher level. Both projects may set an example for other landfills in the Russian Federation, where landfilling is one of the most important ways of waste disposal at this moment.

Furthermore, the projects create local environmental benefits by a reduction in odour emission at both landfills and (small) economic benefits by the sale of electricity produced.

D. Benefits derived from the activities implemented jointly project

Whenever possible, quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s). (If the amount of quantative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

Item

Please fill in

Describe environmental benefits in detail:

Extraction reduces fugitive methane emissions into the atmosphere. Furthermore, odour emissions are reduced and safety conditons are improved

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits?

Yes

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

Not relevant

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

No

Describe economic benefits in detail:

Revenues are collected directly from the sale of electricity produced at both landfills or indirectly from avoided electricity consumption

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

Yes

E. Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

E. 1) Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

Description of the baseline or reference scenario, including methodologies applied:

Landfilling is one of the most important ways of waste disposal in Russia at this moment. The projects in Serpuchov and Mytishi are the first gas extraction projects in Russia. If the projects would not have been implemented, free emissions into the atmosphere from landfills would still occur for at least the evaluation period of 10 years.

The baseline is formed by the prognosis for the degradation of organic material or the gas production of a landfill site. For this prognosis the tipping data (amount of wastes disposed in time, types of waste, age and geometry of the landfill site) are combined with known and experience data from literature and other projects to calculate the typical gas production of a landfill site.

In addition a determination of the quantity of gas is performed at two times during the monitoring period. First to establish the baseline; the second measurement to estimate the effect of the project.

E. 2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

Baseline calculations are combined with experience data of extraction efficiencies. This information gives insight in the possibilities for gas extraction and emission reduction. Conversions of methane emission reductions into CO2 emissions are carried out using global warming potentials as reported by IPCC. The basis for this is formed by the registered quantities and concentrations of gas extracted.

G. Contribution to capacity building, transfer of environmentally sound technologies and know-how to other Parties, particularly developing country Parties, to enable them to implement the provisions of the Convention. In this process, the developed country Parties shall support the development and enhancement of endogenous capacities and technologies of developing country Parties

Describe briefly the transfer of environmenally sound technology and know-how including where appropriate the type of technology, terms, education, capactity building etc.

Know-how on emission reduction technology and extraction and monitoring equipment have been transferred. Capacity building was created by training of personnel on site, joint workshops in the Netherlands and in Russia and by supervision and monitoring of the projects.

Apart from a direct relationship with the emission reduction of greenhouse gases by extracting landfill gas, the quality of waste disposal and awareness of environmental consequences have been raised.
