Around the world, landfills are one of the biggest problems that pollute air because they generate toxic gases. One of which is methane, a lethal gas produced when organic waste is decomposed in absence of oxygen.

Newton-McDonald Landfill is located in Neosho, Missouri, USA and captures methane through a recovery system that purifies it before being burned and destroyed. This process minimizes the negative impact on our atmosphere.

Methane production varies a lot between different landfills, depending on several characteristics like composition, humidity level, operative practices, landfill design, weather and garbage accommodation. Regardless of the source, if methane is not captured it directly affects the atmosphere. Thatís why itís so important to support these kinds of green projects.
