Landfill gas-to-energy (process of landfill to energy, maybe include pictures)
The process begins when MD’s Trash removal Picks up post recycled waste from their residential and commercial customers. That waste is then transported to a processing plant. The processing plant sift and sorts the trash before sending it to the landfills for safe disposal.
Most of the waste is organic in nature, meaning it will deteriorate over time. Bacteria digests the organic waste and produces a methane gas and carbon dioxide as a natural by-product.
The methane gas is recovered through a series of underground gas collection pipes and wells that are drilled into the landfill. These wells are connected by a common pipe system that collects the gas and transports it to a nearby renewable energy facility.
At the renewable energy facility the landfill gas is de-watered, filtered and pressurized to make it clean. Thus getting it ready to be used as a renewable energy fuel.
This natural landfill gas flows through an engine much like the ones used in automobiles, once the gas is combusted it turns a drive shaft that is connected to a generator. The generator converts the power into electricity. Landfill gas may also be piped off site to industrial customers for use as an alternative fuel source.
The electricity is sent to a control system that exports the power to a local power grid that supports communities and businesses.
