In South Africa gold has been mined intensively for approx. 120 years. The resultant pits are used by the local people for waste dumping. In the course of time large landfills have emerged. The Government has recognised the existing energy potential of this waste landfill and is preparing for the power generation of landfill gas. By means of trial degasification this energy potential shall be elicited, so that the planned generation plants can be designed properly.
