How the Landfill Gas to Energy Process Works


For those that ever wondered how the landfill gas to energy process (also known as LFGTE) works? This article takes you through how waste management companies convert naturally occurring landfill gas into clean renewable energy at its LFGTE facilities. To give you an idea of how much the landfill gas to energy process is contributing […]

Landfill Gas Production Rate Quick Calculation Method

The Ready Reckoner or Rule of Thumb Estimate of Landfill Gas Production Rate/Yield Quickly gain a VERY rough estimate of a landfill’s Landfill Gas Production Rate! For the first considerations of a potential landfill gas production rate, before carrying out a full yield evaluation, for landfill gas utilization projects, you can use the following rules (but […]

Three Methods Landfill Engineers Use to Assess Landfill Gas Production Rates


Many people have decided to assess landfill gas production. Ever since the first gas was seen bubbling from landfills in the 1970s, engineers have predicted landfill gas production, and recently a number of calculation models have been devised to predict the total volume and energy value/ climate change effect of landfill gas over the whole […]
