                                 Project Idea Note or PIN

Description of size and quality expected of a PIN

Basically a PIN will consist of approximately 5 pages providing indicative information on:
             the type and size of the project
             its location
             the anticipated total amount of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction compared to
             the “business-as-usual” scenario (which will be elaborated in the baseline later
             on at Project Design Document [PDD] level)
             the suggested crediting life time
             the suggested Certified Emission Reductions (CER) price in US$/ton CO2eq
             the financial structuring (indicating which parties are expected to provide the
             project’s financing)
             the project’s other socio-economic or environmental effects/benefits

While every effort should be made to provide as complete and extensive information as
possible, it is recognised that full information on every item listed in the template will
not be available at all times for every project.

A. Project description, type, location and schedule

Name of Project:_Tanay open dumpsite remediation and development project

Technical summary of the project       Date submitted:_____________

Objective of the project          Demonstrate the environmental and social benefits of methane gas
                                  extraction and utilization through:

                                  Installation of appropriate collection system

                                  Design of appropriate pilot power plant

                                  Help promote safer dumpsites after closure

                                  Develop know-how and expertise in gas extraction

Project description and
proposed activities (including
a technical description of the    The project involves the installation of gas pipes to capture
project)                          methane in an existing 1.2 has. open dumpsite with a total volume
                                  of 375,000 tons of mixed solid waste.

                                  A combination of horizontal and/or vertical wells, which ever is
                                  more feasible, will be excavated/drilled to collect methane gas. A
                                  compressor will be used to pump the gas to a series of surface
                                  pipes that would collect the gas to be fed to the engine that would
                                  produce power.

Technology to be employed         Gas extraction using perforated pipes and gas pumps

Baseline scenario                Existing operation:
                                 Open dumpsite is closed. Methane is escaping into the

                                 Upon project implementation:
                                 GHG will be collected to produce electricity for the Compost
