Kinyara Sugar Co-generation renewable power generation CDM project

CDM Baseline & Monitoring Methodology

ACM 0006 ver9 (consolidated baseline methodology for grid-connected electricity generation from biomass residues)

Annual Average CER: 61,000 t CO2e

Kinyara Sugars is located in Uganda, East Africa. The project involves utilizing the waste product of the sugar manufacturing (bagasse) for power generation. The power generated will be used for captive requirement and additional power will be exported to the regional grid system. The project reduces GHG emissions by displacing grid power (which comprises of fossil fuel generation sources) with a renewable power generation source (bagasse). Kinyara Sugars plan on exporting around 30MW of power to the regional grid.


Mufindi 35MW biomass power generation CDM project

CDM Baseline & Monitoring Methodology

ACM 0006 ver9 (consolidated baseline methodology for grid-connected electricity generation from biomass residues)

Annual Average CER: 111,000 t CO2e

Mudindi Paper Mill is located in Tanzania, East Africa. The project involves the installation of a 35MW power plant, which is fueled by wood waste. During the harvesting of wood for paper manufacturing, waste wood is generated, which cannot be used for paper manufacturing. The business as usual scenario is to leave the wood waste to decay on the forest floor. Mufindi will collect this wood waste and use it for power generation, for captive power of the paper manufacturing plant and excess the power, of about 22MW will be exported to the regional grid. The project reduces GHG emissions by displacing grid power (which comprises of fossil fuel generation sources) with a renewable power generation source (wood waste) and avoidance of methane generation, from the wood waste been left to decay.

VPPL Bagasse Power Generation CDM project

CDM Baseline & Monitoring Methodology

ACM 0006 ver6 (consolidated baseline methodology for grid-connected electricity generation from biomass residues)

Annual Average CER: 56,163 t CO2e

The main objective of the project activity is to effectively utilize the available bagasse generated by the VPPL sugar production mill for generation of steam and electricity. This will be used for both in-house consumption and to export surplus electricity to the grid. The power is exported to the Karnataka State Electricity Board (KSEB) in the Southern Regional Grid, India. The project activity is a renewable energy based power generation project with net zero CO2 emissions (due to carbon sequestration by the sugarcane plants) and power export to the Karnataka state grid. The power generated from the project activity would displace electricity that would otherwise have been generated by the grid-connected power plants in the Southern Grid
