That’s how valuable electricity is produced in landfill degassing

The gas is fed through
the pumping station into
the gas engine

A pumping station then feeds it to a gas engine, which burns the gas with almost no residue.

When burning landfill gas, the methane is converted to 1CO2 and to H2O under optimal conditions. The greenhouse effect is reduced, assuming 60% methane and 40% carbon dioxide, from 6.4 Nm³ CO2 equivalent per Nm³ landfill gas to 0.6 Nm³ / Nm³ and the ozone destruction effect is even reduced to zero.
