The report discusses results of a conceptual design, cost, and evaluation study of energy recovery from landfill gas using a commercial phosphoric acid fuel cell power plant. The conceptual design of the fuel cell energy recovery system is described, and its economic and environmental feasibility is projected. A conceptual design of the project demonstration was established from the commercial system conceptual design. It addresses the key demonstration issues facing commercialization of the concept. Candidate demonstration sites were evaluated, which led to selection and EPA approval of the demonstration site. A plan is discussed for construction and testing of a landfill gas pretreatment system which will render landfill gas suitable for use in the fuel cell. The final phase of the study will be a demonstration of the energy recovery concept.
