Methane fuel

Biogas plant

The proposed gas and composting station at Álfsnes is the next major step in environmental issues in the Reykjavík area. The station is part of a joint waste management policy by the municipalities for 2009–2020. When the gas and composting station becomes operational, all household waste collected in SORPA’s domain will be processed at the station. Organic matter will be used for gas production and composting, which will double gas production.
