LANDFILL GAS COMPRESSORS
Methane from landfill gas is one of the contributing factors to global warming and at the same time a potential source of clean and sustainable energy. Landfill gas is generated during the bacterial decomposition of organic materials in municipal solid waste landfills and is generally composed of approximately 50-70% methane and 30-40% carbon dioxide as well as hydrogen, nitrogen, water vapor, and hydrogen sulfide.
Landfill gas can be used for a variety of applications including:
- Electrical power generation
- Direct replacement for non-renewable fuels such as coal
- Vehicle fueling
- Sale to pipeline
Applied Compression Systems offers a full range of landfill gas compressor packages and blowers utilizing reciprocating, rotary screw, and rotary vane compressors. Materials used are selected specifically for the corrosive nature of landfill gas and include stainless steel piping, vessels, and coolers.
These compressor packages are available as a simple skid-mounted unit or housed in a weatherproof enclosure or walk-in style building for cold climate locations.
