Electricity generation from landfill gas

Central Coast Council, in partnership with landfill gas management contractors has developed gas extraction and electricity generation facilities at its landfill sites.

When buried in anaerobic conditions (without oxygen), organic waste generates the greenhouse gases methane and carbon dioxide. Methane is extracted from the landfilled areas via a network of pipes inserted into areas of the landfill then filtered and burned in a generator creating electricity.

More than 30,000 megawatt (MW) hours of electricity is produced each year from our landfill sites - enough to power over 9,200 houses annually. In addition, the destruction of landfill generated methane has also resulted in the removal of the equivalent of over 341,800 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - the equivalent of taking 30,969 cars off the road for a year!
