Landfill Gas

Located in Edmonton, AB, Clover Bar Landfill Gas is the only facility in the province which recovers landfill gas and uses it to generate renewable energy. The landfill gas is sourced from the City of Edmonton’s Waste Management Centre, and the facility’s energy output is purchased by the City of Edmonton.

Quick Facts

  • Facility capable of producing 5 MW of renewable energy and reduces greenhouse gases by transforming them into electricity. This is enough energy output to power approximately 4,600 homes annually
  • Important source of registered and retired offsets in Alberta
  • Landfill Gas
    • A natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic material in municipal solid waste in conditions where oxygen is not present
    • Created when organic material naturally decomposes in a landfill and creates methane, which is captured and burned to produce electricity
    • Contains roughly 50% methane (CH4) and 50% carbon dioxide (CO2), with less than 1% nonmethane organic compounds and trace amounts of inorganic compounds
    • Methane is a 28 times more detrimental greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide
    • Transforming methane into electricity allows it to be used as a resource rather than becoming a pollutant in the atmosphere
