How can landfills be used to produce fuel?



  1. 0 Votes

    Landfills contain all different kinds of products. These “trashed” goods are meant to be held in the landfill and left to decompose. When natural products decompose they give off a wide range of gases. These gases can be gathered and used as fuels.

    Many landfills are already putting this practice into place. By topping the landfill with heavy plastic and putting collection sites in the landfill they can gather methane and other gases produced by the decomposing process. Some sites use this gas to power electricity generators.
