From Trash to Treasure
The city of Denton’s landfill now produces twice as much methane as it used to—and that’s a good thing. Civil engineers Sahadat Hossain and Melanie Sattler are using a process known as enhanced leachate recirculation (ELR) to add moisture into the landfill, thereby increasing the amount of methane produced by the decomposing waste. The landfill’s collection system then gathers the resulting gas and delivers it to an electricity-generation plant to help provide power to 1,600 homes in the city.
