La Ciotat Land ll

When leaders of La Ciotat, a picturesque town along France’s Mediterranean coast, learned that waste methane gas from decomposing trash at the local land ll could generate electricity, they jumped at the idea.

For 20 years, land ll operators had ared the waste methane.

In today’s energy environment, methane no longer is considered waste. At La Ciotat, it is the vital ingredient in a self-sustaining onsite power plant that produces about 1MW of clean electricity each day – enough power for 1,000 French homes.

Key to the innovative power plant are 18 CR65 Capstone MicroTurbines® that use methane to create electricity later sold

to the grid. According to Xavier Lombard, CEO of Capstone’s Belgium- and French-based distributor, Verdesis, the 18 cost- effective 65kW microturbines produce less than half the emissions of reciprocating engines.

When compared to reciprocating engines, the deep emission reductions of La Ciotat microturbines are equivalent to removing 700 average U.S. cars from the road each day or the CO2 reduction from up to 730 acres of pine and r forests.
