Landfill Gas to Energy Experience
The Live Oak Landfill is a large, closed landfill located in the southeastern Atlanta
metro area. Due to air emission restrictions, power generation was not an option.
There were no large industrial users close to the site to take in the large volumes
of medium Btu gas. A landfill gas to pipeline-quality project was the best solution.
Energy Systems Group provided well-field improvements, gas processing design,
engineering, construction management and operational staff for this plant. Some
of the benefits include:
• Well-field evaluation to determine maximum gas production
• Highly experienced and specialized engineers and design team
• Provided contract support for agreement with local gas distribution company
• Provided well-field training to landfill owner’s staff
The Live Oak plant is designed to process 7,000 standard cubic feet per minute of
raw landfill gas.
The Live Oak facility will significantly improve the local community air quality by
reducing the carbon dioxide—greenhouse gas emissions—by the equivalent of
removing more than 108,000 vehicles from the roads or planting more than
134,500 acres of forest.
