  • Why is Energy-from-Waste slow to catch on in the U.S.?

    Nithin Coca reports in TriplePundit that Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is growing fast in Europe and parts of Asia. But it’s relatively stagnant here in the United States. In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...


  • Landfill Gas to Renewable Natural Gas Project Goes Ahead in Michigan

    Greenlane Biogas, a subsidiary of the Flotech Group of companies (founded in 1986), is pleased to confirm that it recently has received an order to build two 'Totara+' landfill gas upgrading systems to process 3200 scfm (approximately 5150 Nm3/hr) of gas to be injected into a local natural gas pipeline near Detroit Michigan. Greenlane Biogas, a developer and supplier of proprietary water ...

  • Landfills case study: Space heating with LFG: Small project-big savings

    On a typical January morning in Minnesota, a landfill operator is working on the compactor’s transmission. Despite the four inches of snow on the ground, he opens the garage doors in the maintenance building to let out some of the excess heat. Unlike previous winters, this year the operator can afford to crank up the heat in the building while working on equipment because the heat is being ...

  • 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 ...

  • Landfill Liners Vary by Application

    It was in 1991 that the Environmental Protection Agency promulgated its Criteria for Municipal Waste Landfills that set location restrictions, design and operating standards, groundwater monitoring requirements, corrective actions, closure requirements, and more for landfills. It was these rules that mandated that landfills be lined on the sides and bottom before waste is deposited and capped on ...

  • Landfill Cap Enhancements

    Introduction: The precipitation to the landfill cover is balanced by the combination of following effects: run-off, cumulating in soil, evapotranspiration, and percolation. For a given amount of precipitation, in order to reduce or eliminate percolation, the effects of run-off and/or evapotranspiration need to be enhanced. Water Harvesting Water harvesting uses ...

  • 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, ...
