The report discusses technical, environmental, and other issues associated with using landfill gas as fuel, and presents case studies of projects in the U.S. illustrating some common energy uses. The full report begins by covering basic issues such as gas origin, composition, and means of collection; environmental and regulatory background is presented. Properties of landfill gas as a fuel are reviewed; equipment that can utilize landfill gas is discussed. The report then describes experience with six projects in the U.S. where landfill gas has been used for energy. It also references literature on other landfill gas energy projects of interest. Conclusions regarding uses of landfill gas for energy are presented.
