Landfill gas is created in landfills when the organic material decomposes. One of the main components of this gas is carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 is a common man-made gas and the major contributor to global warming. The other principle component of landfill gas is methane (CH4), a colorless, odourless and highly explosive gas. Methane has 21 times the global warming capacity of carbon dioxide. One of the major sources or methane released from human activities originates from municipal solid waste landfills.
At Highland, we have been directly involved in the assessment, design, construction and day to day operations and management of landfill gas collection systems since 1995.
We pride ourselves on our technical knowledge and ability to create innovative solutions to any problems that can hamper the quality and quantity of gas being delivered to the project. We are continuously innovating and creating solutions to the challenges that arise.
