Flex Energy microturbine
Flex Energy has designed a power generator that works with fuels that are low in energy content, such as the gas from closed landfills or residual biogas from anaerobic digesters. Rather than by work by combustion, the fuel is oxidized at low temperature to operate the generator. That means that it could work with gases not suited for a typical generator or microturbine and its emissions are cleaner, according to the company.
