Nyíregyháza Landfill Gas Power Plant

ALTEO concluded a long-term cooperation agreement with the Municipality of Kisújszállás for the energy recovery of waste gases associated with the municipality’s thermal spring water and implement an alternative heating solution based on that. Within the framework of this cooperation, the company had a gas power plant with a 143 kW electrical capacity designed and built and later, in 2009, expanded it with recovery equipment supplementing the gas engine and established a heat pipe network up to the connection points for consumers in order to ensure their heat supply.

The small power plant currently sells the electricity it produces in ALTEO’s balancing group. By disposing of associated gases, the small power plant achieved CO2 savings of around 5,400 tonnes in 2010.
