Ortadoğu Holding investments in the energy sector,with the slogan ‘’Eco-friendly Energy Production’’ carried out the Project of “Landfill Gas to Electricity Generation’’ In Istanbul which is the largest in Europe, and among the top ten largest landfill gas to electricity projects in the world.
These projects involve construction and operation of 33.8 MW power plant in Kemerburgaz-Odayeri solid waste disposal site, and 14,15 MW power plant in Sile-Komurcuoda solid waste disposal site. The landfilling operations at both sites are being handled by ISTAC AS a subsidiary of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
In addition to these sites in Istanbul another landfill gas to electricity project was constructed in Izmit-Solaklar with 6.5 MW capacity and 2.1 MW capacity in Izmit – Dilovasi. The landfilling operations are handled by IZAYDAS, a subsidiary of Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality.
These projects help prevent the effects of methane gas released to the atmosphere, which is 21 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. With these 4 projects in operation our company contributes to the reduction of approximately 2 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions every year.
Landfill gas power plants were transferred to as of 2018
Ortadoğu Energy Holding, which has a great interest in all kinds of renewable energy, is continuing its practices with investments in wind energy, solar energy and geothermal energy alongside landfill gas energy production.
