Soon, 5.5 megawatts (MW) of electricity generated from these landfills using technology from the UK engineering group's Natural Power business, will come online. 

The newest project will enable the municipality of Alytaus in southern Lithuania to generate 1 MW electricity from its landfill waste disposal facility – becoming the third area in the country to convert environmentally unfriendly landfill gases into electricity.
