Waste naturally decomposes. When this happens, it creates landfill gas (mostly methane). Methane contributes to climate change and destroys Earth's ozone layers. Landfills are required to destroy the landfill gas so it is not released into the atmosphere. CEP sells landfill gas to Archaea Energy, who then converts to electricity. There are future plans for Archaea to convert landfill gas into renewable natural gas (RNG).For more information on Archaea, visit their site below.
