The commercial statutory body made the announcement yesterday after its Kinoya-based Gas Flare Project had contributed to the reduction of methane gas emissions produced at the Kinoya Treatment Plant.

The carbon credits are the direct result of WAF’s ability to trap inside a dome and burn off methane gases generated by the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter in sludge at the Kinoya Sewerage Treatment Plant.
