Global Energy Systems Announces Landfill GTE Project

Global Energy Systems, Atlanta, has reached an agreement with Charlotte County, Fla., to build and operate a $6 million gas-to-energy facility at the county’s Zemel Road Landfill.

“The landfill will provide enough gas to generate enough electricity to power 1,500 homes in Charlotte County every year,” said Charlie Wall, chief operating officer of Global Energy Systems, in a press release. “This proactive approach to carbon dioxide emissions reductions has the equivalent benefit of removing 17,000 vehicles from our roadways."
