Project: Clean Development Mechanism Project: Landfill Gas Combined Heat and Power Plant & Waste Management
Location: Kanifing Municipality / The Gambia
Status: ongoing project
Project Lighthouse Gambia, Project Lighthouse Africa and associated partners are engaged with a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project by establishing a landfill gas Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit in the Kanifing Municipality, in order to make a future-oriented contribution to an ecological meaningful and sustainable waste treatment and a stable power generation in the Gambia.
The Kanifing Municipality covers a land area of 75.5 km square and is located bet¬ween the Island of Kombo St Mary on which, Banjul the capital city sits and stretches for a distance of a little over 15 KM as one heads inland to Brikama. It has a po¬pu¬la¬tion of 322,735 (2003 Population Housing Census) and has most of the commercial establishment of the country and therefore generates more waste than any other municipality.
