Landfill Plants

Waste not, want not - turn your waste into energy.

Depending on the landfill design and its management, as well as waste composition, compaction, moisture and several other factors, thousands of landfills are available worldwide to collect and utilize this valuable energy source for power generation.

In our increasingly populated world, waste is unavoidable. But instead of just letting it rot, now you can put it to work in ways that actually help the environment and fuel your business at the same time. Generate heat and power with Jenbacher and Waukesha gas engines operating on captured landfill and sewage gas, reducing conventional fuel use and environmental pollutants—all while yielding high levels of efficiency.


  • Use waste gas as a cleaner energy source
  • Reduce tariffs by using renewable energy
  • Earn carbon credits through methane reduction
  • Yield as much as 90% efficiency for CHP systems
  • Yield up to 42-43% electrical efficiency using waste gas
  • Profit from selling excess power to the public utility grid
  • Take advantage of flexible contractual service agreements
  • Facilitate easy mobility and adjust to changing needs with low-weight containerized units
  • Operate smoothly even with fluctuations in gas composition and pressure as well as low heating value
