smart cells®

Each year, smart cells® produce enough electricity to power over forty-seven thousand homes. Making smart cells® Australia’s largest producer of biogas for the production of renewable energy.

smart cells® are a sophisticated, highly engineered alternative to traditional landfill.

 


Specialised technology captures and converts biogas generated by waste into a natural fuel used to power homes and businesses across Australia.

Producing electricity via smart cells® reduces your carbon footprint, making it an environmentally friendly substitute for non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal and gas.

smart cells® work just like a battery, storing resources for future energy use.

The cell container is made up of specialised liner systems designed to protect the environment and local plant and wildlife. Waste is safely and securely stored within the liner systems for future energy recovery.

 

Why choose smart cells®?

► Renewable energy substitute for non-renewable fossil fuels
► Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
► Conversion of non-recoverable waste into a practical application
► Renewable source of electricity to surrounding residential properties and businesses

Biogas Management

When organic material in a smart cell® or landfill breaks down it generates biogas, which typically consists of 45-60% methane (a potent greenhouse gas), 40-60% carbon dioxide and traces of other organic compounds (less than 1%).

SUEZ manages odour across our smart cells® and landfills in accordance with the Environmental Protection Licence that governs the site operations.

At all SUEZ smart cells® and landfills we responsibly manage biogas on our sites with the aim of:

  • Capturing methane and using it to generate green electricity
  • Preventing landfill gas emissions into the atmosphere
  • Preventing migration of gas off-site
  • Minimising odour emissions
