The goal of this project was to assess the feasibility of converting LFG to liquefied natural gas (LNG) or compressed natural gas (CNG) to be used as fuel for refuse trucks in India. While LNG and CNG only differ in terms of their physical state, the CNG option was deemed preferable in the Indian context. This process has the potential to significantly reduce landfill CH4 emissions by capturing LFG, reducing refuse truck emissions by providing a cleaner burning fuel, and improving India’s energy security by reducing reliance on conventional diesel. The process can also help boost economic growth by adding job opportunities at landfills. Three landfills were identified in the Mumbai area in Maharashtra, India for conducting the pre-feasibility analysis.
