The LFGTE project consists of three 1.4MV ecomangination qualified J420 gas engines developed by GE.

The fuel flexible J420 gas engines are powered by landfill gas,which is created from solid waste decomposition and then recovered as a valuable renewable fuel.

Asja will expand the LFGTE facility with a fourth J420 Jenbacher gas engine to produce a total of 5.5MW by the end of this year.

Four of GE’s Jenbacher J420 gas engines will generate more than 44,000MWh of electricity per year.

The Belo Horizonte LFGTE project is being managed by the Asja Group, to capture and recover the Belo Horizonte sanitary landfill’s waste gas for 15 years.
