The paper discusses Phase I results of an EPA-sponsored program to demonstrate energy recovery from landfill gas using a commercial phosphoric acid fuel cell power plant. EPA is interested in fuel cells for the application because it is the cleanest energy conversion technology available. Phase I is a conceptual design, cist, and evaluation study. The conceptual design of the fuel energy recovery concept is described and its economic and environmental feasibility is projected. Phase II covers the construction and testing of a landfill gas pretreatment system which will render landfill gas suitable for use in the fuel cell. Phase III is the demonstration of the energy recovery concept.
