Waste to energy

12 gas producing wells with each 20 meters of depth are located on the area of the local garbage dump in order to provide the gas for electricity.
It is extracted from the methane gas which is naturally released from the waste on the ground. Extracted methane goes to the factory processing gas to electricity, situated in few tens of meters from the dump. It provides the main thing which is landfill degassing, i.e. depriving harmful methane. In case of round-the-clock working the installation produces 24 megawatt, which is enough to provide a small region with electricity.
Consumers complain about producing electricity, literally, from nothing meanwhile tariffs don’t decrease. In fact, the territory became much cleaner, but it doesn’t influence on the tariffs.
