El Verde Landfill Gas Recovery and Flaring Project
The objective of El Verde Landfill Gas Recovery and Flaring Project is to capture and flare landfill gas (LFG) generated through the decomposition of the organic waste disposed at the El Verde Landfill. This involves investing in a LFG collection system and flare station. The principal components of LFG are methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), both of which are greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol. Flaring LFG for energy involves methane destruction, leading to GHG emissions reductions.
