Link Power's new partnership: Transforming Landfill Gas into Sustainable Solutions in Kazakhstan


In a significant stride toward environmental sustainability, Link Power partners with a forward-thinking company committed to emission reduction projects and embarked on a green initiative in Kazakhstan. The company's latest endeavor focuses on the utilization of landfill gas (LFG), transforming what would be a source of pollution into a catalyst for positive change. Link Power helped to confirm the projects carbon credit potential and invests in the generation process. This project, commissioned in early 2023, is set to revolutionize the waste management landscape in Kazakhstan.


The Baseline Scenario:

Traditionally, landfills have been a source of environmental concern, emitting potent greenhouse gases and contributing to air pollution. The baseline scenario for many landfills involves a lack of recultivation efforts, exacerbating the negative impact on the surrounding environment. Recognizing the need for innovative solutions. The project has targeted one such landfill in Kazakhstan, aiming to turn the tide on the detrimental effects of uncontrolled landfill gas emissions.




The Project Overview:

The initiative involves a comprehensive approach to landfill gas management. Instead of allowing the gas to escape into the atmosphere unchecked, the project includes drilling gas wells, gathering the emitted gas, and implementing a controlled burning process. This not only prevents the release of harmful greenhouse gases but also harnesses the energy potential of the landfill gas for a positive outcome.


Key Components of the Project:


Gas Well Drilling:

Link Power's project begins with the strategic drilling of gas wells within the landfill site. These wells are designed to extract the landfill gas, comprising methane and other volatile organic compounds, before it escapes into the air.



Gas Gathering System:

An advanced gas gathering system is implemented to efficiently collect the extracted landfill gas. This system ensures that the gas is captured and contained, preventing its uncontrolled release into the atmosphere.







Controlled Burning of Landfill Gas:

The collected landfill gas is then directed towards a controlled burning process. This not only eliminates the harmful substances but also transforms the gas into less environmentally impactful byproducts. The energy produced during this process can be harnessed for various purposes, further enhancing the project's sustainability.



Link Power's landfill gas utilization project in Kazakhstan exemplifies the company's dedication to innovative solutions for environmental sustainability. By transforming a conventional landfill into a source of clean energy and generating valuable carbon credits, the initiative underscores the potential for positive change within the waste management sector. As the project continues to unfold, it stands as a testament to the transformative power of responsible and forward-thinking approaches to environmental stewardship. With additional support from carbon credits sales the project owner will have a stronger foundation to continue the journey towards a cleaner future.
