  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • 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 ...

  • Solar energy landfill caps

    Things weren’t going well at the Erewhon Landfill. It was time to close the facility, and there was no soil left onsite for construction of the cap. Erewhon was a County facility, and the money available for 30 years of post-closure gas monitoring, groundwater sampling and reporting, erosion repairs and maintenance of a grass cover was sorely needed elsewhere. The landfill manager recalled ...

  • 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 ...

  • Santa Clara converts low concentration landfill gas to clean energy

    Landfills are an excellent source of methane-rich gas that can be used to generate renewable power. Methane is produced at a landfill as trash decomposes and can be used as fuel for a gas generator to produce electricity. Since 1986, the City of Santa Clara had successfully done this, and had been able to export power to a local utility. However, over time, gas production at a closed landfill ...

  • The whey to renewable energy

    When Tom Wilson with the Pennsylvania State University Cooperative Extension set out to study the feasibility of a community-based anaerobic digester in Mercer County, he initially analyzed processing manure collected from area dairies and food wastes gathered from the local college, nearby prisons and industrial food processors. But the economics of transporting the materials just did not make ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Grid integration of renewables in Egypt

    Integration of large Amounts of Renewable Electricity in the Egyptian Energy Grid - Capacity Building for Management and Engineer-Technical Level (Egypt-RE-Grid). The electricity sector of the Arab Republic of Egypt produces large amounts of electricity through thermal and hydroelectric power stations. Egypt has diminishing proven oil reserves and declining production. Natural gas production is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biomethane enters the gas grid article for energy world

    The Carbon Plan, published in 2011, aims to reduce UK carbon emissions by a quarter from 1990 levels. With the current policies in place, the UK is on target to reduce emissions by over a third by 2020 and with the introduction of new technologies this should increase to an 80% reduction by 2050. However, currently around half the UK’s carbon emissions result from heat related processes and ...

  • Case study - Pierce County, Washington: home of the first public transit fleet in the country to run on renewable natural gas

    Summary: Li 1986 Pierce Transit was one of the first public transit agencies in the U.S. to trade in its diesel and gasoline-powered buses for buses fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG). 27 years later, this pioneering Agency has just finalized a new contract with the local utility, Puget Sound Energy, to buy an even better fuel: the renewable compressed natural gas (R-CNG). This ...
