With the increasing global focus of energy conservation and stress on clean generation, Landfill Gas has emerged as a source which is available backdoor, is proven to be economical in cost perspective and is a growing energy resource in the modern world. The mounting advent of mega cities with their generation of mega tons of waste materials coupled with their growing energy consumption needs, has forced civilization to take a deeper look at understanding energy recycling in every from as available at many sources like a sum total zero equation.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP), there are still over 600 landfills that are viable candidates for project development, with a potential gas flow capacity of over 280 bcf per year.

Looking at LFG in technical terms, it is a byproduct of the decay process carried out on LFG at municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The gas generated from such landfills is an approximate composition of 50% methane and 50% carbon dioxide, coupled with some additional trace compounds. The source heat value of LFG ranges from 400 to 600 British Thermal Units (Btu)/cubic foot and can READ MORE >
