Landfill Gas

As waste within a landfill decomposes it generates methane gas which is regarded as a greenhouse gas and is harmful to the environment. At RiverRidge the company has invested heavily in developing a gas capture systems that allows for the use of this gas to create energy.

As such the company’s Craigmore site is virtually self-sufficient in terms of electricity requirements. No other waste management company in Northern Ireland is able to claim this and consequently have as small a carbon footprint as RiverRidge.
