Product Description

Landfills are facing enormous pressure as environmental concerns pile up. Reducing the release of methane into the atmosphere while generating electricity from “free” fuel, and making heat available to use make CHP use in landfill applications a win-win-win. Landfills are the third largest source of methane emissions in the United States, with municipal solid waste landfills representing 95 percent of this fraction.


CHP for landfill has significant benefits

Capturing landfill gas to use as an energy source yields significant benefits:

  • Reduce greenhouse gases
  • Contributes to energy independence
  • Cost savings
  • Provide LFG to make available as alternative fuel to local customers


Example of project

Edgecombe County Landfill – Tarboro, North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources NCDENR initiated a Landfill Gas to Energy Project located at Edgecombe County in Northern North Carolina. Landfill Gas (LFG) is used for on-site power generation and all electricity produced is fed into the local utility grid. This project is also part of the EPA LMOP program, designed to reduce methane emissions from landfills by encouraging development of cost-effective and environmentally sound LFG energy projects.
