Lebanon landfill gas-to-energy project will use GE engines

Lebanon is using General Electric (GE) Jenbacher gas engine technology at its landfill gas-to-energy project in Naameh, near Beirut. The project could potentially generate 637 kW of renewable energy, according to GE.

This project also will eliminate the equivalent of about 12,400 tons of carbon dioxide — the amount of emissions produced by about 6,100 cars per year.

Operated by averda international, the project is considered to be a pilot project and could be expanded to use the Naameh facility's full capacity.

Landfill gas typically comprises about 55 percent methane and 45 percent carbon dioxide. GE's gas engines use captured methane gas as a fuel to produce electricity.
