Bio-Gas Technologies has been an innovator
in small power production facilities. The Green Valley Energy
Project is a perfect example of this innovation. This project
utilizes the trapped methane in an abandoned coal mine as
a source of fuel.
The three modules on the right were designed,
engineered, constructed, and financed by Bio-Gas Technologies.
This project produces 3.7 MW of electricity, and has a convenient
modular construction. This site has been operated and maintained
by Bio-Gas Technologies since its installation.
This is a design Bio-Gas recommends to its
customers who expect the engine to outlive the project or
have an unreliable gas supply.

This project, located in Burlington,
Vermont, exports 700 ekW continuously. The Caterpillar G399NA
shown to below is running on landfill gas. This system has
been operational since fall of 1992. The landfill is capable
of producing landfill gas for approximately 15 years. The
entire project was designed and constructed by Bio-Gas Technologies.
.:Brattleboro, Vermont (1991)
The photo featured right is
Bio-Gas' first landfill gas-to-energy project in Brattleboro,
Vermont. Installed were two G3412NA Caterpillar gas generators
which are rated @ 350 ekW each. This station has been operational
Once all the landfill gas
has been extracted, these particular modules can be moved
to another site with relative ease.

After a brief vacation from the industry,
Bio-Gas Technologies surged back into business. During the
year 2006 two projects were designed, engineered, financed,
and constructed by Bio-Gas Technologies. In early 2007, both
of these projects went online at full capacity.
The Outagamie County Landfill was one of these
two projects. This is a 4.8 MW system which utilized three
of Caterpillar's newest and most efficient engines. While
these engines have been known to cause a great deal of difficulty
for Caterpillar and other builders, we have made some modifications
to repair their design flaws.
In all of their landfill projects, they design
the controls and the switchgear, because of the necessity
for customized control. Further, they are able to optimize
cash flow on these projects by monitoring the quality of gas
being extracted from within the landfill.
If the gas is pulled from the landfill too
quickly, it can jeopardize the landfill's ability to produce
combustible gas. Bio-Gas' controls are able to monitor and
control the consumption of gas to a continuous supply of landfill
