Gas CHP is highly energy efficient and as well as supplying heat and power, it can deliver a number of positive financial, operational and environmental benefits.
A byproduct of this anaerobic breakdown is landfill gas, which contains approximately 50 percent methane and 50 percent carbon dioxide with small amounts of nitrogen and oxygen. This presents a hazard because the methane can explode and/or burn. So, the landfill gas must be removed – and that methane can be used as a source of energy to create heat or electricity.
Landfills and anaerobic digestion plants can use the gas emitted methane emissions through our projects recover methane and use it to produce electricity or heat. This gas is supplied to fuel engines to generate electricity, which is fed directly into the national grid.
For any CHP installation up to 10MW, we can provide a turnkey solution for you covering the following action list:
- Carry out a site assessment
- Provide detailed design calculations
- Obtain planning permission
- Mechanical and electrical installation
- Grid connection
- Service agreement
