Waste Management has announced an impressive scheme for utilizing landfill gas which would otherwise contribute to climate change to a much greater extent than combusting the methane in the landfill gas as proposed than would be the case if it was allowed to flow into the atmosphere.

A project in Wewoka, Oklahoma will use landfill gas to fuel a nearby brick factory, reducing approximately 30,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas pollution per year in the process. >>The project is being financed by eBay, Esurance, Designtex, Ceres, Brighter Planet, and College of the Atlantic through the purchase of NativeEnergy’s Help Build carbon offsets. The […]
Final storage quality is used to imply an “environmentally sound flux/load for short, medium and long term periods” but what will govern the final decision, and what can we do to limit greenhouse gas emissions actively and passively.
The historic first use of biomethane (now known as rCNG) in a council vehicle in the UK was in the London Borough of Camden. The fuel is now increasingly used for powering buses. A main reason for using it is its comparatively clean burning characteristics, which make it a far cleaner fuel than diesel. Back […]
