Curtis Engine is proud to be one of the pioneers in the development of Green Energy projects. Many years before the national outcry for renewable energy, we were part of a team that developed a landfill gas (LFG) electric power plant at the Brown Station Road landfill in Prince George’s County, Maryland. At the time such a project was truly “cutting edge” if not downright “experimental”. Over 30 years later, Curtis Engine is still operates and maintains the power plant.
Combining our experience with MTU Onsite Energy Biogas Gensets allows us to supply clean, dependable energy from landfill and digester gas
A lot has changed since 1987 and solar panels and wind power have become more popular forms of renewable or green energy. However, we still help landfill operators and wastewater treatment plants use their landfill and digester gases as an alternative fuel source. For these applications, biogas is an available, renewable, and eco-friendly energy source for powering onsite power generation systems that generate electricity for their facility. This helps owners and operators lower utility expenses, reduce their carbon footprint, and allow them to operate independently from the grid.
Implementing a biogas-powered power plant using MTU Onsite Energy gas engines, landfills and wastewater treatment plants can reduce energy costs and gain a new revenue opportunity by selling power to the local utility. Along with generating electricity, landfill and wastewater plant operators can reduce carbon emissions, while also reducing odors and hazards. We can also integrate combined heat and power (CHP) equipment into the system to provide hot water and steam for buildings or industrial processes.
