  • Seropédica landfill

    The Seropédica landfill is located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Since the closure of the 130-hectare big Gramacho landfill, Seropédica now receives over 6,000 tons of waste per day. Seropédica is the most modern solid waste treatment center in Brazil and Hofstetter has been awarded the biogas treatment process, as well as the set up of a flaring system at the landfill. ...

  • Biogas in Asia

    The development of biogas production and monitoring has had many twists and turns, from its early days in Germany to the heady days of support through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).   The fall in the price of carbon credits, which rewarded reduction in emissions of methane (CH4) - a potent greenhouse gas - and use of methane from waste as renewable energy, has hit Asia ...

  • Recovering energy from biogas emission: the case of Mariana Mantovana landfill (Italy)

    This paper deals with the analytic rating of the economic investment in an energy recovery plant for municipal waste, in relation to the estimate of its capability to exploit biogas production transformation, and sale of electricity production, and the Green Certificates. The approach entails the assessment of potential scenarios of biogas flare coming from its production forecasts, according to ...

  • Biogas as an option for industrial applications

    Biogas is typically burned to produce electricity or used as vehicle fuel. This case study analyses possibilities to utilise biogas directly in industrial applications to replace current fossil raw materials. True industrial cases are analysed by considering economic impacts of using either landfill gas or gas produced from biomass. Utilisation of biogas is economically viable and technically ...

  • Zero landfill is not zero waste

    THE Zero Waste movement is more than just a vision. It is a movement that is actually changing the world. To prove it, I recommend visiting GreenBiz.com and in the search box type “zero waste.” You will be amazed, as I was, at the tsunami of business activities over the last couple of years related to the idea of totally eliminating waste from our manufacturing, distribution and ...

  • Landfills Expand Energy Output

    HIGH fossil fuel prices and growing concern about global climate change are creating favorable conditions for landfill gas energy (LFGE) projects. Notably, endorsement of LFGE by Federal agencies and many states as a form of “green” power has enabled LFGE developers to earn premiums for electricity marketed through green power programs, and to benefit from expanded federal tax credits for ...

  • Estimates of CO2 emissions reduction and potential power generation from biogas at Mare Chicose landfill

    In this study, the annual generation of Landfill Gas (LFG) and methane using the Scholl-Canyon model have been predicted for 1998-2030 for five scenarios of landfill management at the Mare Chicose landfill in Mauritius. Using the Approved Large-Scale Methodology AM003 and Approved Baseline Methodology AM0010 of the Approved Methodologies for CDM activities, the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions ...

  • The Benefits of Biogas Conditioning

    Abstract Anaerobic digestion is quickly becoming the choice technology for sewage sludge treatment at wastewater treatment plants, as the methane rich biogas produced is a valuable resource which can be used to generate electricity. In the oxygen restricted environment, a natural by-product of the anaerobic process is hydrogen sulfide, a harmful contaminant. Also present in the biogas are ...

  • Case study on landfill gas mitigation

    Over the last 20 years, Biogas Technology Ltd has established itself as one of the UK’s leading supplier of landfill gas mitigation technologies. The privately owned company provides owners and operators of landfill sites with the technology to collect andconvert methane gas into useful energy (normally electricity) or simply ‘flare’ it to reduce  missions of harmful greenhouse gases. ...


  • CSDU Lapouyade landfill - Case Study

    The CSDU landfill site (Centre de Stockage des Déchets Ultimes) of Lapouvade is operated by SOVAL, a subsidiary of the CGEA ONYX group. The municipal solid waste for the landfill site comes from Bordeaux and the surrounding area. The two Type 3 containers from Jenbacher installed in 2004 use the biogas that is produced by methanogenesis of the rubbish on the landfill. The engines have a ...

  • Biolimp siloxa for plant for biogas cleaning

    The biogas produced in a digester, landfill or waste water plant is normally treated in order to remove water, H2S, dust and/or CO2. The choice of the cleaning method employed and the compound to be removed depends on the type of end use of the gas. This paper focuses on desing, star up and operation of biogas cleaning plant for removal dangerous component (water, H2S, NH3, siloxane and ...

  • Landfill gas to fleet fuel in Ohio

    In mid-September, the Solid Waste Authority of Columbus, Ohio (SWACO) cut the ribbon on Phase I of its Green Energy Center that will convert landfill gas to compressed natural gas (CNG) for use in CNG-powered cars and medium duty trucks. The facility will produce enough CNG annually to replace almost 250,000 gallons of gasoline, plus additional natural gas sufficient to generate electricity for ...

  • Energy recovery from biogas purification

    Energy recovery from biogas is becoming more common, but the processes are hampered with the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often contaminated with toxic quantities of H2S. Sources of biogas are: municipal landfills that produce landfill gas (LFG), wastewater treatment plants, industrial plants, and large scale livestock farms. ...

  • Easy payback from biogas monitoring

    There is a strong business case for biogas monitoring and CHP protection. A fixed biogas analyser may cost some £6-10,000 and monitor gas every few minutes day and night. By comparison it can save its own cost many times over by protecting CHP engines from expensive unplanned downtime, biogas engine ...
