Modern Landfills Are Capturing Energy with Waste!

Most modern landfills are equipped to capture the Land Fill Gas (LFG) produced by the BioFlex® package and convert it into renewable and sustainable energy. In the U.S., there are currently 550 modern landfill projects, and in Canada, there are 64 projects.

 

The energy generation facility recycles BioFlex® into renewable energy, just simply discard the used package into the waste bin. It's that easy!

    Environmental Benefits of Landfill Gas

Environmental Benefits of Landfill Gas

Landfill gas reduces greenhouse gasses produced by fossil fuels including natural gas, coal, diesel, and other fuel oil. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated for 2012 that landfill gas recovery projects had an environmental benefit equivalent to:

  • 21 million acres of pine or fir forests

  • emissions from 238 million barrels of oil consumed

  • annual greenhouse gas emissions from 20 million passenger vehicles

  • generates renewable energy 24hrs/day, seven days a week and is not dependent on weather conditions

  • supplies more renewable energy than solar power

  • has an online reliability of greater than 90 percent.
