Landfill Gas projects

The World is covered with Garbage Dumps seeping Methane.

Northstar Clean Technologies aims to become the leading recovery and reprocessing company for asphalt shingles in North America.
Visualizing the Global Landfill Crisis

Wherever there are people there are Garbage Dumps.

By capturing and using the Methane in all the world’s Garbage Dumps/Landfills, we can cut at least 15% of the GHG’s in our air.

Climate Trace suggests that the “Waste Worldwide” has at least 86.2 M TONNES of CH4 (Methane) and they have not finished tracing it!

??Is your Garbage Dump Capturing the Methane and putting it to good use?
??OR is the Methane in your Garbage Dump seeping into the atmosphere?

Let’s capture the Methane and make cleaner renewable Energy with it!

What is Landfill Gas (LFG)

The information may not be exact, but it sure gets the point across!

Landfill Gas projects

You can find these projects all over the world already!
BUT not enough!
Not enough to cut all the Garbage Dump/Landfill Gas still seeping into the air!
And some countries are worse than others…..

The super emitters

Landfill Gas projects - where they are needed the most- Landfill Gas projects Worldwide - - - Clean up the Air, Now!
Look at the Blue lines

Satellite data analysed by the company Kayrros has identified 1,005 super-emitter events in 2022, of which 559 were from oil and gas fields, 105 from coalmines, and 340 from waste sites, such as landfills.

United Kingdom methane memorandum
3.2.2 Landfill methane capture and renewable electricity generation
November 2022/…The Renewables Obligation scheme for the encouragement of renewable energy was introduced in April 2002 and applied to the generation of electricity by landfill gas. This was designed to encourage generation of electricity from eligible renewable sources in the UK. Landfill gas is collected and used to power turbines which generate power for the grid, generating 3,500 GW/hour in 2020.


One of the world’s biggest problems, right now, is that the electricity grids world wide are not set up to take in and use all the renewable electricity that is being made. This company has a – temporary – solution to this problem.

1 min – Pioneering Battery Enables Landfill Gas to Balance UK Grid
Sep 23, 2020 – Flexible energy generation specialist Ylem Energy Ltd, has installed the UK’s very first 1MW battery energy storage system (BESS) alongside an existing landfill-gas generator to enable the site to participate in the National Grid’s Balancing Mechanism. Located in York, the 1MW (1.2MWh) battery is charged by the existing on-site generation system and allows the power stored to be readily available at short notice to meet the demands of the network as required. Rated at 1MW, the system can store and supply some 1.2 MWh of power – which would be the equivalent energy required to power around 2,400 average homes for one hour.

3:18 min – Episode 34 EXPLAINING: Generation and release of methane at landfills
May 19, 2020 – In this episode, we share information on the generation and release of methane which is a by-product of landfilling municipal solid wastes. Most of the global municipal solid waste is dumped in non-regulated landfills and the generated methane is simply emitted to the atmosphere.

Here we have a discussion re-cap from Zambia of what all the videos in this post have been talking about:

“We at EnvironCompass believe that a lot more can be done to capture and utilize this significant energy resource.”

Zambia is listening too.

  1. What a great issue. It needs to be sent to every county in the US to show them what needs to be done to stop the climate crisis.
