At our main location, we have constructed a combined vertical and horizontal landfill gas recovery system. The recovered gas is used in landfill gas boilers, which heat water that enters our heat transmission network. This network includes our wastewater treatment plant and heats our main offices in winter. In summer office comfort is maintained by an adsorption cooling machine. The surplus heat is transmitted to the nearby greenhouse complex owned by a local Bromelia grower. Landfill gas that cannot be used is burned in a 2 MW high-temperature flare.
In the coming years, as the landfill reaches its final phase of operation, we will expand the landfill gas recovery system with the addition of approx. 150 vertical wells and 25 horizontal drainage fields.
