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 closed, suburban landfill at the West Belconnen Waste Management Facility. This improves local air quality and contributes to the local economy.

  • No regulatory requirement to capture biogas, however ACCUs enable additional carbon abatement (above its 36% baseline) from a commercially viable flaring project on this closed landfill site, under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).

  • Since 2019, LGI has upgraded the bespoke biogas management system and installed an ERF compliant biogas flare. Council benefits from this bespoke biogas management system at minimal cost.

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