Preventing the use of 99,000 barrels of oil

Powering more than 600 homes per year

Direct use of LFG is also highly beneficial to the environment. The LMOP argues that each 1 mmscf/day of collected landfill gas is equivalent to the following:

Offsetting the use of 400 railcars of coal

Preventing the use of 195,000 barrels of oil

Heating more than 5,000 homes per year

LFG is also a reliable and renewable source of alternative fuel. Its production emits little to no sulfur dioxide or particulate matter, it burns much more cleanly than fossil fuels like oil or coal, and it produces far less nitrogen oxides. During the process of combustion it is also much less volatile than conventional sources of energy or fuel.
