The landfill gas waste-to-energy plant at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, was constructed with four generator units designed to run on methane gas produced by the breakdown of wastes buried in the landfill. A fifth generator unit is expected to come on line in 2013, producing 26.2 percent of the base’s electrical load. (U.S. Air Force photo)
