Dutch company Multriwell visited Vireo’s production facilities in Belarus in October 2018 to assess improvement potential of four installations.

Dutch company Multriwell has a unique and patented solution for landfill gas extraction that is significantly different from traditional landfill gas extraction technologies. The technology involves permeable filters that are pushed into the landfill body every 2 – 3 meter thereby creating a much larger gas extraction surface exposed to the landfill. In independent studies, the technology has proven several times more efficient compared with the traditional technology. In other words, for a given landfill surface, the Multriwell technology has potential to extract several times more gas. Vireo is therefore investigating the cost-benefit balance for introducing the Multriwell system in its Belarusian projects.
