  • NovaGerar landfill gas to energy project

    Overview The objective of the NovaGerar Landfill Gas to Energy Project in Nova Iguaçu - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is to explore the landfill gas (LFG) collection and utilization activities of the landfills managed by S.A. Paulista. This involves investing in a gas collection system, leachate drainage system and a modular electricity generation plant at each landfill site (with expected ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Zero Waste to Landfill Goal: Portland Aluminium

     Portland Aluminium has achieved a significant reduction in the amount of waste going to landfill. Although driven primarily by business needs including the pursuit of efficiencies, waste reduction has been achieved by evaluating processes, gaining the commitment of its workforce and combining these efforts with both cleaner production and waste minimisation concepts. ...


  • Wind-driven SVE system extracts VOCs from landfill

    An innovative soil vapor extraction (SVE) system has operated at the former Ferdula Landfill site in Frankfort, NY, for the past 10 years. The system relies on wind-driven vacuum processes rather than electrically powered air blowers to extract volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the landfill. After a two-year trial beginning in 1998, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ...

  • In-situ estimation of the methane generation rate for a wet and highly organic solid waste landfill

    Significant investments in landfill gas utilisation projects are required at project commencement. The methane generation rate for the Villa Dominico Landfill in Buenos Aires, Argentina is 0.26 yr−1, a very high rate as a result of the high organic content in the waste, and high moisture conditions within the refuse. The implications for landfills is that ...

  • Composting generates cash for greenhouse gas benefits

    Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) recently finalized an initiative to develop a protocol for issuing offsets to projects that avoid greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through composting or other similar approaches. This article explores the development of the new protocol, reviews its key attributes and describes how an entity can earn tradable credits for its GHG mitigation project. In 1992, the U.S. ...

  • How to define additionality in relation to greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions

    Companies that have facilities which use refrigeration and air-conditioning systems or heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems have to measure changes which are imposed upon them due to greenhouse gas emissions. Additionality is a measure which compares the level of emissions prior to implementation with the levels after a greenhouse gas reduction project has been introduced. ...

  • Generation using gas-fuelled engines in South Africa – an overview

    Most gas engines are Otto cycle spark ignition internal combustion reciprocating engines using natural gas as the primary fuel. Smaller models utilise stochiometric combustion while the larger engines are lean burn engines with pre-chamber ignition systems. The engines are coupled with packaged generator sets, ...

  • Case study - Sacramento, California: The first U.S. city to power refuse trucks on renewable natural gas (RNG) made from separated food

    California has long been a pioneer in implementing sustainable transportation strategies, and yet again, the State can claim another first-of-its land project in the United States as its own. By collecting and diverting food waste from a local landfill, two Sacramento-area companies, CleanWorld and Atlas Disposal Industries, have opened the Sacramento Biodigester — the first closed-loop ...

  • Triad expedites brownfields redevelopment in Fairbanks

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) used Triad in 2006-2007 to assess environmental conditions at a municipal property along the Chena River in Fairbanks, AK. FNSB accelerated the site investigation as part of a brownfields assessment grant received from the U.S. EPA in 2005. Low-level contamination had been identified onsite in past investigations, but its extent and impact on future ...
