  • Cutting landfill costs - not capabilities

    The garbage business is generally a good indicator of the economy’s strength. And while the bad news is that waste tonnage is down at most landfills, the good news is that there is a bottom. Most of the drop is due to a slumping construction industry, compounded by less consumer buying. But the garbage business—like taxes and death—is relatively constant. Some landfills are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Utilisation of landfill gas for the generation of energy

    The gases in landfill sites that develop during degradation processes, largely contribute to the greenhouse effect and additionally harbour considerable safety and health hazards. However, they are also often rich in methane and therefore a potential energy carrier. In many countries much of this potential for the generation of electricity and heat from landfill gas still exists. Furthermore, ...
