GE, Clark Energy, Biffa Turn Landfill Gas to Energy

GE landfil gas to energyClarke Energy, GE’s authorized Jenbacher gas engine distributor for the United Kingdom, has been selected to supply UK waste management company Biffa with eight of GE’s Jenbacher landfill gas engines as part of a modernization of several landfill gas-to-energy (LFGE) plants across the UK.

For the project, Clarke Energy will supply Biffa with eight of GE’s containerized, 1MW JGC320GS-LL gas engines. Biffa plans to replace some of its older LFGE generators that have reached the end of their operating life cycles with GE’s more efficient, ecomagination qualified Jenbacher units. The GE engines will generate a combined 8.5MW of renewable electricity, which is enough to power 20,000 average homes.

GE’s fuel-flexible Jenbacher gas engines are powered by landfill gas, which is created from solid waste decomposition and then recovered. This methane-rich gas would otherwise be wasted by being released into the atmosphere as a potent greenhouse gas. Methane has a global warming factor that is 21 times greater than CO2.

The new LFGE units, which will be manufactured at GE’s Jenbacher gas engine factory in Jenbach, Austria, are expected to be delivered in October.

Waste Management is building a facility that will create pipeline-ready natural gas from its Milam Landfill in Fairmont City, Ill.

The processed renewable natural gas will be injected into the pipelines of Ameren Illinois for withdrawal at other locations, including some Waste Management facilities. Once there, it will be used to fuel truck fleets and other equipment that run on compressed natural gas (CNG).
