Landfill sites with organic waste produce landfill gas which is approximately 50% methane. Methane is a harmful greenhouse gas that contributes to the effects of global warming. It is also an energy resource which can be used as fuel to power a renewable energy facility. Unlike wind and intermittent forms of renewable energy, methane captured by LMS extraction systems are a proven base-load fuel source, providing reliable continuous output.
LMS is committed to designing, engineering and installing landfill gas systems which achieve world-class gas capture efficiencies. The gas is extracted from the landfill via a series of wells and network of pipes which connect to an LMS Gas Flare or Generator Module. This process requires a specialist understanding of landfill dynamics, such as waste settlement, gas flows, pressure loss and the management of condensate.
LMS has gained extensive experience that ensures our designs are not only proven, but cutting-edge. Partners can be confident that LMS’ landfill gas systems meet current standards, with over two billion cubic metres of landfill gas extracted, and more than 3,300 gas wells installed by internal teams across Australia.
