Leachate Evaporation

Where waste heat is available in adequate quantities, either in the form of landfill gas or waste heat recovery systems from power generation equipment, evaporation offers an attractive solution to the problem of leachate disposal.

AD of Food Waste

Over a billion tonnes of edible food – equivalent to almost one-third of global production – is wasted annually by the world. This would be enough to feed three billion people, according to a recent report by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.

Waste as an Energy Source

Waste can come in many forms suitable for energy recovery. The processing of agricultural products, such as tapioca, palm oil, rice, and coconuts leaves significant quantities of solid and liquid effluent which can be processed to produce energy.

Methane Liquifaction

Methane is the main component of biogas and is generated from landfill sites, anaerobic digestion of food waste, and organic agricultural waste. Biogas is increasingly being used as a fuel source, not only to generate electricity but also, after cleaning, as a fuel directly in vehicles.

Energy from Cattle Manure

The anaerobic digestion of cattle involves the breakdown of organic waste by bacteria in an oxygen-free environment resulting in safe treatment and the production of biogas that can be used in the generation of power either for on-site use or for export.

Electricity from Landfill Gas

The use of landfill gas for electricity generation is an established commercial activity. The days of risk assessment and uncertainty have long since passed. The risk remains of the availability of landfill gas during the contract term, and gas proving is necessary.
