Landfill Gas

Lyme and Wood Pits

Landfill Gas Portfolio.

Frampton

 

The Frampton Landfill site, situated at RMC Cemex landfill site, to the south of Gloucester, started generating electricity in August 2004. The project produces up to 1,400kW of renewable energy by burning landfill gas. This is enough to supply the equivalent of 2,600 homes.

 

Berwick Farm

 

The landfill site at Berwick Farm started to generate electricity in August 2005. The site at Hallen in South Gloucestershire is now owned by SITA. The engine installed at the site generates up to 600kW of renewable energy by burning landfill gas. This is enough to supply the equivalent of 1,100 homes.

 

Lyme and Wood Pits

 

The Lyme and Wood Pits landfill site started to generate electricity in December 2005. The site at Haydock in Merseyside is owned by Cory Environmental. As part of our ongoing development of the site there are now four engines installed at the site which can generate 6,000kW of renewable energy by burning landfill gas. This is enough to supply the equivalent of 11,400 homes.

 

Vigo Utopia

 

The Vigo Utopia site, again part of the Cory Environmental group, is situated in Walsall, West Midlands and started generating electricity in June 2006. Its twin engines generate up to 2,000kW of renewable energy by burning landfill gas. This is enough to supply the equivalent of 3,800 homes.

 

Landfill Gas Environmental Benefits

 

Landfill gas typically comprises 60 % methane and 40% carbon dioxide, both of which contribute to global warming. However, by using the gas to produce clean energy, its impact on the environment is reduced. Energy produced in this way also helps reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.

 

Ventus VCT acquired our Landfill Gas Portfolio in April 2008.
