    Generating power with landfill methane

Achieve a Better Alternative

Alternative fuels are playing a more significant energy role every day, so you need power systems that can take advantage of their benefits. Cummins designs, builds and maintains on-site power generation systems using special low-Btu gas generator sets. Achieve flexible greener energy options (without sacrificing performance) with gensets that run on these alternative fuels:


  • Solid waste landfill gas: a 50-percent methane gas formed from organic material in landfills
  • Municipal sewage digester gas: a 65–75 percent methane gas produced by sewage digesters
  • Biogas from agricultural wastes: a methane gas produced from hog, cattle and poultry confinement wastes
  • Coal seam gas: methane occurring naturally in coal deposits
  • Flare gas: flammable gases and vapors from oil exploration activities
  • Biodiesel: diesel fuel mixed with up to 10 percent of oils and fats from plant or animal sources, burned in an unmodified diesel generator
