Ener-Core moves away from manufacturing its own landfill gas-to-energy equipment

By Cole Rosengren, Waste Dive.

Dive Brief:

  • Ener-Core, Inc. has signed a license agreement giving Dresser-Rand—owned by Siemens—the exclusive rights to manufacture its power oxidizer gas turbines.
  • Dresser-Rand and Siemens will expand the product's reach by selling it to new and existing industrial customers. Ener-Core will receive a license fee payment for each unit sold.
  • The technology is used to convert low-quality waste gases, such as landfill emissions, into heat and power. This agreement covers turbines within the 1 to 4 MW power capacity range.
