Waste Management to expand landfill gas to energy efforts
The company has already done this at 100 of the 281 dumps that they operate and the next sixty are the only ones that currently have enough methane flow to make power generation viable. The sixty new installations should generate 230MW of electricity giving WMI a total of 700MW of generating capacity. These kinds of installations do give off some CO2 from burning the methane but the net greenhouse effect is only a fraction of what it would be if the methane was simply vented to the atmosphere.
