Traditionally, landfill gas has escaped into the atmosphere through the slow decomposition of waste, or the flaring of waste to expedite the process, contributing greatly to greenhouse gas emissions and local smog. Ameresco works as an intermediary between landfills, nearby facilities, local utilities and local governments to develop landfill gas-to energy (LFGTE) projects that capture this gas for electricity and heat, turning a harmful source of waste into a beneficial source of renewable energy.

Editor’s Comments: Is There a Hybrid Microgrid in Your Future?

I’m a real believer in options and the decentralization of our vital infrastructure components—energy systems at the fore—where their disruption can catapult us into fifth-world receivership in short order. Thus, on a regular basis, I’ve used this column to discuss a variety of energy-from-waste opportunities in different waste situations and facilities.

A Game-Changing Opportunity

A Game-Changing Opportunity

Energy Storage Solutions’ parent, Forester Media, has had a foot in the renewable energy door from day one in 1991 with its initial publication, MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) Management’s involvement with waste-to-energy (WTE) and landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) activities. More recently, these endeavors have been joined by a variety of energy-from-waste practices,

Obtaining Investment for LFGTE

Owners of landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE) projects face market and regulatory drivers that are forcing LFGTE owners to consider new ways to monetize their landfill gas (LFG). This article will discuss alternatives to the electrification of LFG. Included in that discussion will be a consideration of the process for developing non-electric

The Organic Factor

Diverting organic wastes, especially foodwaste, from landfills is a top priority of many local governments and environmental organizations. Even such federal agencies as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) support the diversion of foodwaste from landfills.

Organics are the low-hanging fruit (and

SWANA Submits Comments on Common Control

SWANA and the National Waste & Recycling Association (NW&RA) submitted  comments  to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on a  proposed settlement agreement  originating from a common control designation in the state of New York. The comments, submitted March 9, ask that the EPA continue to ensure that permits allow
