Landfill gas generated by the waste deposited at the landfill is transported to gas engines via a gas pipeline network equipped with catchpots and gas wells, and converted to electrical power there. A total of 96,667,197 m3 of landfill gas was extracted from the landfill body between December 2014 and December 2015. All of the extracted gas was processed at the Small Thermal Power Plant.
