LMS is a leading renewable energy and carbon abatement company with 30 years of industry experience. In 1982 the founders pioneered the collection and conversion of landfill gas-to-energy in Australia. Today, LMS has over 100 employees and is Australia's most experienced landfill gas-to-energy company.
Landfill gas is approximately 50% methane (CH4), a harmful greenhouse gas that contributes to the effects of global warming. By destroying and reprocessing landfill gas, LMS reduces greenhouse gas emissions and provides a local renewable energy source for the community.
LMS is one of few companies globally to offer a complete, in-house service for energy recovery from landfill gas. This includes everything from the initial design and engineering, installation and operation through to the marketing and sales of electricity and renewable energy certificates. This service continues for the life of the project, providing ongoing environmental benefits for the community and higher financial returns for clients.
With projects located from Perth to Brisbane, Darwin to Launceston, LMS projects currently generate over 370,000 megawatt hours of base-load renewable electricity annually. This makes them an industry leader in the production of Large-Scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) from landfill gas electricity generating activities in Australia. In addition, LMS abates approximately 2,200,000 tonnes (CO2e) of carbon each year from their flaring and renewable energy facilities.
The company’s position is further enhanced by the financial backing of Sims Metal Management, one of the world’s largest recyclers. Financial strength and stability, combined with industry experience, provides LMS with the resource base to build, own and operate renewable energy facilities to the ultimate satisfaction of stakeholders.
