Landfill Gas to Pipe Process

Landfills generate biogas and leachate as the waste undergoes biological, chemical and physical transformations. The primary components of landfill gas (biogas) are methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as numerous trace components. Landfill gas control in the United States started in the 1960’s and 1970’s as massive landfills were created. Over time, landfill gas collection system design, construction and operation has matured as biogas utilization stated becoming a viable and growing business. Today, landfill gas upgrading is a proven technology with ongoing innovations being realized in the areas of gas collection, enhanced gas generation, gas upgrading and gas utilization.

Natural Gas Pipeline

After the upgrade treatment process is complete, Pipeline-Quality bio-methane is injected into the gas pipeline and blended with fossil gas. This renewable biogas would have otherwise been flared for EPA compliance.
