  11. 11. www.biogasassociation.co.za PROJECTS South Africa has been one of the leading countries in the world in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s for biogas digesters built at municipal Waste Water Treatment Works. In 2006 first landfill gas to electricity project in Durban. In 2014 a digesters at a WWTW in Johannesburg were refurbished and a 1.1MW biogas plant commissioned.

  18. 18. www.biogasassociation.co.za BENEFITS Biogas plants do not ONLY produce electricity! • Sustainable waste management (abattoirs, manure, processing plants, cheese factories, breweries, etc) • CHP from gensets (free heat energy) • Digestate is an organic compost (additional revenue stream) • Reduction of CO2 emissions (green houses) • Carbon footprint/carbon neutrality • Green jobs (5/MW compared to 0.9/MW for solar!) • Skills transfer (introduction of new technology)
  19. 19. www.biogasassociation.co.za CHALLENGE • No feed-in tariff or incentive scheme based on the real benefits of biogas industry (not only electricity production) • General lack of awareness (both in government as well as private sector) • Lack of local experience (particularly on operational side) • Challenges around financial viability, specifically on the small scale (< 1MW) • Long approval processes (license, EIA, PPA, wheeling agreements, MFMA, etc) • Funding reluctance from banks (again for plants < 1MW) • IPP process – complicated, costly, only above 1MW (most projects below 1MW)
