Landfill Methane Reclamation Product from Air Liquide
Industrial giant Air Liquide of France has launched a new product to capture and reclaim methane from landfills. Named BIOGAZ, and originally developed in the U.S., the system converts methane gas into pipeline quality energy, the company says.
Organic waste buried in landfills degrades into biogases, which comprise methane, the major constituent of natural gas. When released in the atmosphere, methane contributes to the greenhouse effect. In the summer of 2006, a BIOGAZ system was installed at a new landfill methane recovery project near Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
