Modern technology for degassing systems, landfill gas utilisation and flares.

Disposal and treatment of landfill gas

Our systems in the area of gas technology are put together to suit the needs of customers. We offer the best solution for every landfill site.

The gases in landfill sites, produced during the breakdown processes, make a considerable contribution to the greenhouse effect, and pose significant health and safety risks. On the other hand, they are often rich in methane gas and thus represent a potential energy carrier. Our expertise, our many years of experience and the modular construction of our plants ensure that we achieve the best possible solutions.

Our landfill products

Efficiency | The reliable landfill gas flare

The HOFGAS-Efficiency high-temperature gas flare provides safe and environmentally friendly high-temperature combustion of landfill gas. The exhaust gas emissions meet stringent requirements.


  • Efficient combustion of landfill gas
  • Automatic temperature control
  • Controlled and concealed combustion
  • Combustion temperature 1,000 – 1,200°C
  • Residence time more than 0.3 s
  • Insulated combustion chamber
  • Compatible with CDM projects

READY / READY C | Customized de-gassing system

The HOFGAS-Ready is a complete extraction and gas flaring system for a the safe and economical degassing of landfills.

The gas is continuously collected and prepared for further use. The installation can be equipped with a gas utilisation connection for energy recovery. A complete degassing unit is built in a ventilated container, which makes the HOFGAS-Ready C plant theft-proof and protected against environmental influences. Controlled high-temperature combustion with concealed flame is guaranteed by the HOFGAS-Efficiency high-temperature flare.


  • Preparation of the landfill gas for utilisation
  • Ideal equipment for CDM projects
  • Robust construction
  • Skid-mounted
  • Quick installation
  • Easy to operate

LPM | Customised gas treatment system

A modular degasification system at the highest level for large-scale landfills.

Equipped with several blower groups, one or more high-temperature flares and additional customised control and regulation concepts. The HOFGAS-LPM degassing system is the classic solution for the safe and extensive handling of landfill gases. Controlled gas processing for further use in generators or heating power plants.

The excess gas is efficiently disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner in high-temperature flares, according to European guidelines. Ideal for further development phases of the landfill operation.


  • Modular component structure
  • Ideal for development phases
  • Expanded operating range
  • Recommended for landfill gas CDM projects
  • Optimal gas processing for recycling
  • Fulfils the legal regulations
  • High safety standard

SPARKY | Compact unit

The HOFGAS-Sparky compact degassing unit is used for household waste landfills without gas utilisation. HOFGAS-Efficiency high-temperature flare provides controlled gas combustion.


  • Compact, safe, good value for money
  • High safety standard
  • Concealed flame
  • Automatic temperature control
  • Quick and easy commissioning
  • Minimal maintenance requirements

LOWCAL | Gas flare for low calorific gas

An optimum solution for safe and efficient degassing of old landfill sites. The innovative HOFGAS lowcal high temperature flare for low calorific gas is designed to provide greater gas control during the latter phases of a site.

Low calorific gas high-temperature combustion is necessary on more and more sites due to increased aftercare requirements. Falling gas volumes and lower gas concentration require innovative solutions. With HOFGAS-Lowcal, the existing gas collection system can continue to be used. Innovative, safe and efficient.


  • Burns safely and efficiently with a low methane content of 15 –30 vol.%
  • High-temperature combustion
  • High safety standard
  • Quick installation time
  • Minimal maintenance requirements
  • Compact, safe and inexpensive
