The present report describes the establishment of a demonstration plant for exploitation of landfill gas, the experience that has been gleaned and the results achieved in this connection. The main objective of the project was to construct aa economically viable plant which could ensure optimum recovery and exploitation of the landfill gas in small landfills where the filling height is relatively low. For optimum recovery a special adjustment system was introduced, which has resulted in an increase in the recovered gas volume. It also ensures a constant methane content. The landfill gas is used in a boiler which supplies heat to the Viborg district heating system. Some of the gas is used in a Stirling motor, in order to test how this particular motor works on landfill gas. The report contains information about the measuring and registration system of the plant and data derived from the measuring programme.
