KliK foundation Case Study

Case Study: Promoting climate action on Swiss sewage treatment plants

On behalf of the KliK foundation, South Pole is operating a program to reduce methane emissions from Swiss sewage treatment plants. The program enables the plant operators to improve their carbon footprint and to increase their self-sufficiency with simple measures.

South Pole's approach:

  • Is good for the climate: The emissions of methane, which is 25 times more harmful than CO2, are reduced.
  • Entails a customised solution: Three different options take into account the individual conditions of the sewage treatment plant. The core processes of wastewater treatment are thereby hardly affected.
  • Is financially interesting: A support of up to 140 CHF per ton of saved CO2 allows for a quick payback of the investment.
  • Has lean administration: The administration costs for the sewage treatment plant are low. South Pole handles the whole issuance process of the CO2 certificates.
