Landfill gas is mainly composed of methane and carbon dioxide.  Carbon dioxide has a global warming potential of 1 but methane has a global warming potential of 21 so allowing the landfill gas to simply vent into the atmosphere is not acceptable.

The EU Landfill Directive requires that landfill gas be collected from all sites receiving biodegradable waste, and that this gas must be treated.  If the gas cannot be used to produce energy, it must be flared.

B9 Organic Energy and sister companies B9 Power Ltd and Drumanakelly Generation Limited have worked with local authorities and other landfill owners to develop a number of landfill gas to power projects in Ireland.
