Landfill Gas

We work with landfill owners, operators, and
waste management companies to turn the liability
of landfill gas into a renewable environmental asset.

For landfill owners, the required flaring of these harmful gases often demands capital outlay, while providing absolutely no return on investment once LFG is eliminated. When LFG is properly treated, it can be repurposed as a profitable, long-term source of renewable energy and reduce compliance risk for landfills.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”108px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”image” bg_image=”8676″ bg_image_type=”parallax” color_overlay=”dark” opacity_overlay=”30″ header_feature=”yes” el_class=”bg_img_section”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”200px”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text el_class=”lead_title”]

Methane is a greenhouse gas with a lifetime of twelve years in our atmosphere, and twenty-one times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. Forty percent of methane emissions in our atmosphere originate from natural sources, such as wetlands, oceans and hydrates. Human activity, alarmingly, accounts for the remaining sixty percent of the world’s methane production, and the majority of human-induced methane can be traced to one area: landfills.

All contaminants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have been removed and incinerated. From there, the gas can be sold into a natural gas pipeline, offsetting the world’s shrinking fossil fuel reserves, while almost completely eliminating the environmental consequences of solid waste decomposition.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][eut_single_image image_mode=”large” image=”8677″ animation=”fadeInLeft”][vc_empty_space height=”75px” el_class=”empty_space_none”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”color” padding_top=”80px” padding_bottom=”0px” section_id=”why” bg_color=”#e1e1e1″][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”75px” el_class=”empty_space_none”][eut_single_image image=”8678″ animation=”fadeInRight”][vc_empty_space height=”75px” el_class=”empty_space_none”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1536317197101{padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”75px” el_class=”empty_space_none”][eut_title title=”LFG-TO-PIPELINE” heading=”h2″ animation=”fadeInRight” el_class=”title_black”][vc_column_text animation=”fadeInRight”]Instead of maintaining and operating equipment to flare LFG, a few different procedures make it possible to harness the energy potential of landfill gas for profit: electric power generation, development of medium-BTU industrial fuels, and injection of high-BTU gas into utility company pipelines.

We believe the LFG-to-pipeline production model is the best solution for most landfills managing a quarter-million tons of waste or more each year, particularly in areas where the difference between the cost of fuel to produce electricity and the price of that same unit of electricity (known as the spark spread) is considered low. A high-BTU gas project is likely more viable in these areas than a power plant.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_empty_space height=”75px”][eut_single_image image_mode=”large” image=”8679″ animation=”fadeInDown” el_class=”marginleft”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row heading_color=”primary-1″ section_type=”in-container” footer_feature=”yes” desktop_visibility=”hide” tablet_visibility=”hide” tablet_sm_visibility=”hide” mobile_visibility=”hide” padding_top=”30″ padding_bottom=”30″ el_class=”bullet_line”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1524670877645{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][eut_title title=”High-BTU advantages over on-site electric generation projects:” heading=”h2″ el_class=”title_black”][eut_list]

  • Shorter development time allows for earlier payment of royalties. Facility build time is approximately nine months after a notice to proceed, compared to over two years for a power project.
  • Gas is delivered to a nearby pipeline for distribution so that electric generation can be maximized off-site, utilizing a high efficiency combined cycle power plant.
  • Lower noise levels and emissions than an electric generation plant build greater community support.
  • Negligible air emissions reduce permit requirements.
  • Processed gas can be transported to higher priced REC markets, offering much better economics to the landfill owner.
  • High-BTU is based on current gas, RIN, and LCFS prices.

[/eut_list][eut_title title=”High-BTU advantages over medium-BTU projects:” heading=”h2″ el_class=”title_black”][eut_list]

  • Medium-BTU projects are based on a discount to the natural gas market, which is trading at historically low levels. Medium-BTU projects also need a 24/7 gas user nearby to work.
  • High-BTU projects capture value from three distinct markets: natural gas, cellulosic biofuel, and low carbon fuel standard.
  • The best medium-BTU projects get 80% NYMEX.
