Landfill Gas Capture

Technical details

Taking out the greenhouse gas trash with landfill combustion!

The Davis Landfill Gas Offset Project, located at the Davis County Landfill in Layton Utah, consists of a gas collection and control system (GCCS) comprised of an interconnected network of vertical extraction and horizontal wells connected via underground header piping to a blower station and redirected to a pipeline for off-site combustion in three separate generator engines or to one of two enclosed flares. The landfill is not considered a bioreactor as defined by US EPA.

The landfill facility is owned by Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District (WIWMD). A single dedicated pipeline delivers the compressed LFG to an electricity generation plant where the LFG is destroyed in a Jenbacher Engine Model #J320, Caterpillar (CAT) Engine Model #3516, and a CAT Engine Model #3512, all of which are owned and operated by Hill Air Force Base. The two enclosed flares handle excess LFG and are located on the landfill. The account holder and project developer is Element Markets Emissions, LLC.

Cloverly buys offsets that meet accepted standards for being real, measurable, verifiable, permanent, and additional. "Additional" means that the carbon savings would not have happened without the offset project and that the project would not have happened unless it got certified to sell carbon offsets. The Reserve oversees verification of the Davis County Landfill Gas Offset Project. You can find verification documents at https://thereserve2.apx.com/mymodule/reg/prjView.asp?id1=473.
