  • Turning a Liability into an Asset: A Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project Development Handbook

    Each person in the United States generates about 4.5 pounds of solid waste per day almost one ton per year. Most of this waste is deposited in municipal solid waste landfills. As this landfilled waste decomposes (a process that may take 30 years or more), it produces landfill gas. Landfill gas contributes to the formation of smog and poses an explosion hazard if uncontrolled. Furthermore, because ...

  • 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, ...

  • Landfill Gas Use Trends In The United States

    MOST PEOPLE think of landfills as a necessary evil at best, but our current primary method of waste management generates a by-product with significant energy value - landfill gas (LFG). Collection and control of LFG results in significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With the greater focus on climate change, a burgeoning market for GHG emission offsets is emerging and landfills ...
