Additional information:

Biogas power plants at landfills are designed to extract methane, which is formed due to the natural process of waste decomposition. Gas is then transferred from the compressor to the reciprocating engine, which converts it into electricity.

The installation of such a system not only allows producing energy from garbage but also significantly reduces the risk of fires, as well as decreases the height of the landfill.
