LGI Is Generating Green Electricity From Landfill’s Biogas

In an ideal world, all garbage would be recycled and the planet would be powered entirely by renewable energy, but we aren’t there yet. Till such time firms like LGI are collecting the biogas produced by landfills and are converting them into renewable electricity.


This is a more efficient, cleaner, and well-established method of lowering greenhouse gas emissions into the environment. They employ landfill biogas to reduce carbon emissions and generate renewable power from landfill’s methane.

However, LGI must first remove siloxanes, a substance often present in many of the cosmetics and deodorants we use on a daily basis and which ends up in landfills.

Removing siloxanes from landfill biogas is critical because it avoids accumulation in the engine, which would otherwise alter its compression and shorten the generator’s life. The major advantages are improved operation and less maintenance, less lubricant oil used, and enhanced energy output. The majority of the electricity generated is sent into the local power grid, with the site’s parasitic load accounting for only 3.3 percent.

LGI has a strong track record of assisting landfill owners and operators with creative, commercial solutions. Managing the risks associated with landfill biogas while reaping the advantages of reduced carbon emissions and dispatchable, distributed, and quick renewable energy.

The firm transforms biogas to renewable energy when and where it is required, accelerating the company’s goal of reaching net zero. They are working on integrating the platform with energy storage batteries, synergistic solar, and/or bio-methane.

LGI’s own activities are carbon neutral, and they are working to lower their carbon footprint even more in order to achieve net zero as soon as feasible.
