Landfill Gas (LFG) & Other Biogas
Methane, the main component of natural gas, is also available from landfills, sewage treatment facilities and many agricultural waste streams where it is generated along with inert gases in natural decay processes. This gas has a lower energy content than conventional pipeline natural gas and must be enriched through extraction of the inert gases prior to use in standard natural gas consuming appliances. Many operators of these facilities chose direct use of the gas in its low energy form to power on-site and off-site processes. Since the gas make-up may vary over time, Standby Systems has developed technology to stabilize the burning characteristics of the gas. This same technology can seamlessly make up any shortfall in gas production requirements utilizing air-diluted natural or propane gas.
