ENER-G partners with Seneca Global Energy on three landfill gas generation projects

ENER-G landfill gas generation technology
UK renewable energy generation company ENER-G Natural Power has partnered with Hartlepool-based Seneca Global Energy to generate up to 3.8 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity at three UK landfill sites.

ENER-G will design, build, finance, operate and maintain three renewable energy facilities at Seneca Global Energy's landfill sites at Blaydon, near Newcastle; Longhill, Hartlepool; and Gilberdyke, Hull. The process will convert methane rich landfill gas into renewable electricity to export to the National Grid.

The landfill gas generation facilities, which could be operational by March 2013, will generate sufficient electricity to power up to 3800 homes. They will cut annual equivalent carbon dioxide (CO2e) from the sites by a total of 117,264 tonnes, equivalent in benefit to the carbon sequestered annually by 96,118 acres of pine or fir forest.

The methane gas will be drawn from the waste through a series of wells and then captured and converted into renewable electricity using ENER-G landfill gas generation equipment, designed and manufactured at the company's global headquarters in Salford, Greater Manchester. The technology will be housed in small soundproofed enclosures.

Neil Elliott of Seneca Global Energy said: "This is a safe and proven world class method for converting landfill gas into green energy and we are proud to partner with ENER-G, which is a global leader in landfill gas management. This is the best available technology for controlling methane gas emissions and turning a greenhouse gas into renewable energy that can supply affordable clean energy while meeting the UK's climate change targets."

Hugh Richmond, managing director of ENER-G Natural Power added: "We are delighted to work with Seneca Global Energy to help them realise the full renewable energy potential of landfill gas. The projects will be funded by ENER-G, including operation and maintenance. Over the past decade we have designed, built and safely operated more than 100 landfill gas facilities, providing in excess of 160MW of generation capacity.

ENER-G Natural Power Ltd specialises in biogas generation - utilising methane from landfill gas, anaerobic digestion and mines to generate renewable electricity. It is the renewable energy division of UK clean tech group ENER-G, which is a global leader in sustainable energy – producing innovative world class clean technology products and delivering services that reduce cost and carbon.
