ABSTRACT
The article offers information about Viridor Waste Management which manages a 193-acre site east of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is considered as one of the largest operators of landfills in Great Britain that uses two low-British thermal unit gas generator sets from Cummins Power Generation to produce 3.5 megawatts of electricity from methane. The facility has two generators operating in parallel which is specifically modified to run on dilute methane and supplies power to its nearby cement plant which has a total demand of about 23 megawatts.
