While large landfills can produce enough methane gas to power megawatts of generating capacity, it is not a large percentage relative to the large amount of biomass energy delivered to the landfill. A significant advantage that solid waste management systems have over other bioenergy feedstocks is that it provides a captive supply of material ready for processing.
