Landfill gas

The new ELI today is the next is our 'net zero' emissions series, 'Energy from buried waste: Landfill gas'.

It is vital that modern technologies are developed not only to manage waste but also to ensure that minimal harmful by-products are allowed to pollute the air or the ground. We must re-cycle as much as possible and mitigate the effects of non recyclable material. This ELI is a case study of good practice by an industrial firm to try to reduce its use of fossil fuels and to assist the local community in reducing its carbon footprint
