An interesting pathway to produce transportation fuel is to process landfill gas to methanol. Landfill gas typically contains 50-60% methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas. The methane can be captured and then flared or used in an energy recovery process. There are a number of landfills, including some in Canada, which use the captured gas to produce steam and electricity. An alternative process is to convert the methane into a transportation fuel such as methanol. The methanol can be used in spark-ignited engines (M85), in modified compression ignited engines (M100), reformed onboard for use in fuel cell vehicles, or reformed to produce hydrogen for use in fuel ell vehicles.
This fuel cycle that uses landfill gas to produce methanol has been successfully added to GHGenius. The model has also expanded the use of hydrogen from electrolysis by adding a heavy-duty fuel cell pathway. Each of the new pathways has full functionality in the model including the summary sheets and the cost effectiveness calculations.
