Landfill Gas Recovery Facilities

Landfill Gas Recovery Facilities in New York State

Landfill gas is generated by the natural degradation of municipal solid waste by anaerobic micro-organisms. Landfill gas-to-energy projects control the migration of explosive gases, treat emissions and can offset tons of sulfur dioxide emissions which would be produced by fossil-fueled power generation.

State assistance grants are available for eligible municipal landfill gas management projects.
