Environmental Benefits

The main environmental benefit from the operation of the station lies in the destruction of the methane (CH4) produced within the landfill site (21 times more effective than CO2 on greenhouse effect) while renewable electricity and heat is produced.

The station can produce annually about 175,000,000 kWh of electricity by replacing fossil fuels that otherwise would be required for the same energy output. This prevents additional release of carbon dioxide by 148,000 t / y .

Finally the utilization of the recoverable heat in the leachates evaporators can save oil consumption up to 400 l/h.
