A landfill-gas power project, which is already underway in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, costing 34.2 million yuan ($5.56 million), is expected to produce 12.5 million kWh of electricity annually when it is completed, Xinjiangnet reported on Tuesday.

That will meet the average annual electricity needs of some 6,000 families and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 109,327 tons.

The project has five power units, with the first two expected to be finished by mid-October, according to the management of the Dapugou integrated solid waste disposal site.
