Biogas From Landfill

The biogas generated from landfills is a mix of methane and carbon dioxide. 

Although they offer a very effective way of managing waste, landfills therefore generate large amounts of methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas (GHG) that is twenty times more damaging to the climate than carbon dioxide. This explains why we can observe more and more regulations to ban many inadequate landfills.  

What is Veolia’s offering to manage the landfills biogas?

Veolia can extract and recover the gas generated by landfills in order to produce energy, instead of letting the large amounts of methane go into the atmosphere and harming the environment. Today, there is a pressing need for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Making use of the landfills’ gas generation is a way to reduce them. Additionally, using our waste to produce energy is both an innovative and sustainable way to preserve resources and improve access to them.

Therefore, if managed well and properly valorized, waste and the biogas produced from the streams can be valuable sources of energy.

What is Veolia’s unique value for landfills biogas management?

Biogas is a resource that is difficult to capture reliably. The added value of Veolia is precisely in the control through the whole process from the capture of biogas up to its recovery with the best techniques available. With nearly 30 years of expertise, Veolia has proven to be a reliable partner for the implementation of this solution, thanks to:

  • A reliable technique to guarantee high energy productivity with better global efficiency
  • An experience backed by the feedback of more than one hundred units of biogas recovery
  • A competitive solution to control energy costs
  • A well-trained and skilled staff to operate the biogas recovery plant
  • Ability to take charge of the project throughout its term, on the whole value chain
  • High knowledge of the stakeholders involved in the process

Veolia’s biogas recovery services ensure full regulatory compliance, sanitary safety, cost control and environmental performance in every step of the process. As an advocate of a circular approach, we ensure this biogas recovery solution makes it possible for territories to be their own producers of renewable energy at a local level.  This enables governments to reinforce their resilience and high environmental performance, thanks to a substantial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
