Capstone Turbine Sold for Landfill Waste-to-Gas Project | San Fernando Valley Business Journal
Friday, March 11, 2022
Capstone Green Energy Corp. has sold a microturbine for a landfill gas-to-energy project at a solid waste facility in New England.
The project will convert the gas generated by waste at the landfill to electricity that will be redistributed to the electrical grid and utilized to power its municipal facilities. The Van Nuys turbine manufacturer didn’t name the city involved, but the sale was made through Vergent Power Solutions, its distributor in New England.
Currently, the landfill generates and burns 350 standard cubic feet per minute of landfill gas. The project will convert all of this gas into electricity with a Capstone C1000S microturbine. The conversion process will generate 1 megawatt of electricity and deliver a continuous renewable source of revenue for the city. The project is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3,500 tons per year.
The project is scheduled to be commissioned in early 2023.
Shares of Capstone closed Friday down 16 cents, or 3.8 percent, to $4.04 on the Nasdaq, while that market closed down 2.2 percent.
