Today’s primary use of capture Methane from a landfill or digester is Electrical Power Generation by internal combustion engine (turbine or reciprocating) typical installation consist of the following major components:
Gas compression equipment for gas field extraction and compression to 2-3 psig
Internal Combustion Engine is usually a reciprocating engine that manufactured for numerous other commercial applications with some enhancements to run on landfill or digester gas.
Engine is coupled to synchronous generator.
Electrical power controlled and connected to the grid via common electrical switchgear with some additional controls for load control.
Electrical substation consisting of station transformer (stepping up to utility distribution voltage and well as utility tie breaker (at distribution voltage.
