SUEZ recently installed an additional 12 wells to extract landfill gas from the current cell being filled. The wells draw gas into the landfill gas network and the gas is converted into electricity through generators before it is redistributed to the grid.
The installation of wells contributed to a significant collection of further landfill gas, helping to mitigate odours. After monitoring the wells, plans are underway to complete more works to reduce the potential of odour impacting our neighbours.
