These projects capture that methane and generate electricity by burning it. You will commonly find project benefits such as stimulating economy through job creation and poverty alleviation; preservation of natural resources; promotion of reliable and renewable energy; reducing air, soil and water pollution; improving city infrastructure; helping spread green technology worldwide; and improving health and safety.
