Abstract

The City of Johannesburg, a world class African city is looking to improve air quality, cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and generate alternative sources of fuel by creating an effective management system for the enormous amount of waste generated within the city. The structures put in place would not only cut down dependence on landfills but provide fuel to power the city's metro buses and in the nearest future generate electricity. This paper focuses on the quantification exercise at the Johannesburg Market which has the potential to generate about 28, 486 GJ of energy per year from the anaerobic digestion of fruit and vegetable waste which accounts for 93% of the total waste generated at the market.
