With today’s focus on renewable energy and carbon emissions reductions, landfill-gas-to-energy projects are gaining momentum. As an important and growing energy production solution within the world’s power generation mix, these distributed power plant systems collect, process and treat the available landfill gas to generate electricity. Our gas engines use gas produced in landfills to generate electricity.
The advantages of deploying landfill-gas-to-energy power generators:
Extend equipment life and maintenance intervals for landfill applications
Deliver improved output and reliability
Offer lower operating and maintenance costs
Efficient solutions even for the lowest methane content
Reduce environmental impact
Operators of landfill-gas-to-energy power systems, such as municipalities, generally use blowers or vacuums to direct the gas from a collection site through a network of pipes to a central facility. At most developed municipal solid-waste landfills, the methane and carbon dioxide are destroyed in a gas collection and control system or utility flare. The sustainable alternative is to divert the landfill gas from the flare to be used in electricity-producing MWM generator sets.
