As part of the closure of a landfill in Tartu, a company is developing a biogas system that could fuel the city’s fleet of municipal buses.
A study by the company, Doranova, found that Aardlapalu dump had six times the initially estimated amount of biogas reserves – big enough to consider them a potential source of fuel for public transport.
The municipality plans to introduce five biogas-fueled buses this year.
The study determined that it would be possible to produce 533 cubic meters of biogas per hour, enough to supply 20 buses a year with biogas.
