    As with many things we learn, finding that landfill’s emit gas happened by accident.  Unfortunately the accidents that resulted in our furthered understanding caused damage and even death.  The first recorded in 1986 in Loscoe, England was the product of gas build up and the damage destroyed the landfill.  The second in 1991 occurred in Denmark.  The result of an explosion in a neighboring house caused the death of 2 people.  

    The good news is now we know the effects of landfills gas build up and are using to our advantage.  CLICK HERE to learn more.
