Summary

We participated in this innovative project using waste gas from a landfill as fuel for a power boiler at the University of New Hampshire. The gas is considered a "Greenhouse Gas" and previously it was collected and burned off as it was emitted from the decomposing landfill material. This project built the infrastructure that created the opportunity to collect and transmit this gas for use as fuel to make power and steam.
