Water waste in Palm Oil Mill (POM) is not effectively utilized yet. Before waste waterÂ discharge from POM, the waste water is processed by an aerobic treatment in severalÂ ponds to decrease the influence of organic matter. Methane gas generated in theÂ anaerobic ponds is a Green Gas House giving a contribution to global warming impact. In Palm Oil Mill of Sei Silau located in North Sumatera, the potential generated methaneÂ gas in two anaerobic ponds has been investigated using measurement of ChemicalÂ Oxygen Demand (COD) of waste water in the sites. Based on the potential generatedÂ methane gas, the reduction of GHG emission is calculated, and the feasibility of theÂ project as CDM project was evaluated.
