Landfill Gas Technology

Landfill Gas Systems

Landfill gas systems harness gas emitted from waste sites, so that it can be converted into a power source or used as fuel replacement.

Landfill gas (LFG) is created by decomposing solid waste. The methane released during decomposition can be captured, harvested and converted into a significant energy resource. Methane emissions are some of the most potent greenhouse gases. The collection and use of LFG reduces not only landfill odors, but prevents methane and other harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere.

The Benefits of Landfill Gas

An asset for municipalities, counties or private owners, methane can provide:

  • New revenue streams

  • Energy price stability

  • A stable on-site fuel source

  • A reduced carbon footprint
