Biogas to Renewable Power 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 the ACT Govt. to recover biogas and abate carbon from the landfill at the Mugga Lane Resource Recovery Centre. LGI collaborates with the ACT Govt and site operator (Remondis) to optimise biogas extraction to improve air quality, increase local renewable dispatchable power, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to contribute to the local economy.
There is no regulatory requirement to capture biogas, however ACCUs enable additional carbon abatement (above its 66% baseline) by making it commercially viable to upgrade and expand the biogas system under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) and to install and operate a new state of the art biogas to renewable power station project.
- Siloxane Removal System (SRS) is embedded into LGI’s modular power station design to deliver significant O&M savings and increased availability to enable more renewable energy creation. This approach was pioneered by LGI on landfills in Australia.
LGI designed, built and operates the new 4.2MW power station which was commissioned in June 2020 and has scope for expansion and enhancement, including with battery storage. Since commencing on site LGI doubled biogas recovery and carbon abatement in one year with biogas system upgrades and new power station – our most recent and largest in our growing portfolio.
The power station supplies consistent, dispatchable (peak and base load) power to help stabilise the local electricity system for planning future development in the region.
LGI collaborated closely with the ACT Government for the design, installation, operations and maintenance of the biogas management system, including the monitoring and reporting services provided and to develop the power station.
