The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development helps expand Amman’s first landfill gas recovery system
November 30, 2018
In response to Amman’s urgent need for investment in solid waste management, the EBRD is providing a blended financing package of up to €7.4 million to the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) to finance the expansion of the landfill gas (LFG) recovery system currently operating in Al Ghabawi landfill.
This investment marks the third sub-project under GAM’s Solid Waste Crisis Response Programme. The EBRD’s funds will assist GAM in capping cell 4 of the landfill and subsequently connecting it to an existing LFG recovery system, thus capturing methane gas and utilising it for the production of clean energy.
