Biogas Capture and Abatement from Landfill Project

We expedite the transition to renewables with clean energy and carbon abatement solutions. Carbon credits enable a commercially viable project to create additional abatement.

  • Long-term contract with Fraser Coast Regional Council to recover and beneficially use biogas and abate carbon from this small, regional landfill in Hervey Bay. This improves air quality, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to the local economy.

  • No regulatory requirement to capture biogas, however ACCUs enable additional carbon abatement (above its 30% baseline) from a commercially viable flaring project on this very small, regional, closed landfill under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).

  • Since 2016, LGI installed a bespoke biogas management system with an LGI 250e ERF compliant biogas flare. Council benefits from this bespoke system at minimal cost.

  • LGI collaborates closely with the Council regarding the design, installation, operations and maintenance of the biogas management system,  including the monitoring and reporting services provided.
