Have you ever heard something good coming out of bad. Well, that is what NMMC is planning to do by implementing the Carbon Credit project. Achieving a milestone, NMMC is the first corporation in India to have initiated this project which captures the methane released due to dumping and in turn utilizing it to generate energy. The corporation has joined hands with UK based companies, Eco securities and Biogas Technology for its new venture. The signing ceremony for the project was held at Turbhe where the requisite papers were signed between NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata and Julio Castillo, Senior Project Development Manager of Ecosecurities. We spoke with Julio Castillo who gave an insight on the implementation of the project. Vision from leadership is very essential to drive for a change and it is this vision of the NMMC Commissioner that the first of its kind carbon credit project is being started in Navi Mumbai. The project is expected to be completed within a year’s time and if it indeed does, then power crisis in Navi Mumbai would not only be reduced to some extent but it would also lessen the threats of global warming in the future.
