Capstone Turbine Corporation (CPST) Announces Launch of Ultra Low Emissions Product to Operate on Digester and Landfill Gas

Capstone Turbine Corporation (CPST) announced that it released configurations of the C65 kilowatt microturbine which meets the extremely low global emission requirements including California’s stringent waste gas emissions standard.

A study performed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) has identified over 570 candidate sites in the U.S. along with potential capacity for 1,370MW and approximately 16M metric tons of carbon equivalent (MMTCE) potential emissions reductions.

Landfills, in addition to digesters and coal bed methane, are key market verticals for the company’s C65 Landfill and Digester resource recover products. Certification to the new waste fuel emissions standard by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) makes approved technologies, such as the Capstone Landfill and Digester Microturbines, much easier to site in California. The company’s microturbines are the first power generation technology to receive CARB approval for operation on waste fuels such as landfill and digester gas, and are capable of burning waste gases with methane contents as low as 30%.

Jim Crouse, executive vice president of sales and marketing stated, “We are excited to offer our customers a product that is accepted by the state of California and supports sustainability initiatives.”

Capstone Turbine Corporation is a leading producer of low-emission microturbine systems. The company is headquartered in the Los Angeles area with sales and/or service centers in New York, Mexico City, Milan, Bath, Shanghai and Tokyo.
