Global warming, also known as green house effect, is the most
concerning problem of our generation since it induces climate
change. El Nino and unforeseeable typhoons and flood reflect
the seriousness of the current climate change that is occurring
all over the world.
In order to deal with the fatal climate change, Kyoto Protocol
has been adopted during the United Nations Framework Convention
on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference held in Kyoto, Japan
in December 1997. One of the important issues which were dealt
focuses on Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) to reduce the
pollution caused by the industrialization and overpopulation.
CO² Emission is the most hazardous factor which is speeding
the global warming. And current tendency to reduce the CO²
level by each country, whether it is by own will or by strict
measures being taken, will require most advanced technology
to be adopted.
We, MECEN IPC, are at the forefront of the environmental
business to deal with the current pollution problem and as
a part of it, we are implementing CDM project using landfill
gas (LFG) directly from landfill sites using two steps. In
the 1st step, LFG can be treated and captured before the actual
sustainable development process as it is the main cause for
air pollution if not controlled. As the 2nd step, we can construct
power plant which generates electricity by using the LFG collected
in the first step.
As a result, our CDM project in the stabilization process
provide both advantages which could solve out the environmental
problem related to the LFG by collecting it and economical
benefit by generation of electricity power for local supply
by utilizing the already captured LFG.
