プロジェクト概要

This project consists of the collection and destruction of landfill gas from the closed Midshore Regional Solid Waste facility (MRSWF) located southeast of Easton, Maryland. It includes a VCS Version 4.0 gas collection system, which conveys landfill gas to a generator and three flares or a single backup flare.
The project achieves emission reductions through the collection and combustion of methane in one of four destruction devices, thus reducing the quantity of methane released into the atmosphere from the decomposition of waste in the closed landfill. In the project's absence, most of the methane collected would have been vented to the atmosphere.
N.B.: Prior to this project, a passive landfill gas collection and combustion system destroyed landfill gas from the landfill in a flare. This initial system recovered only a fraction of the landfill's gas and methane that would have been vented; that fraction recovered in the initial system is deducted from final emission reduction calculations.
LFG was first flared on October 19, 2009 and all metering equipment was installed on October 28, 2009, representing the start date for the project. Stage 2 involved the implementation of a 1.05-megawatt power-generation facility by Easton Utilities at the site.
