Biomethane for all


Upgrading landfill gas into biomethane

Waga Energy (WAGA.EPA) is an innovative biomethane producer specializing in landfill gas upgrading, with a global presence and a proprietary technology.

Waga Energy developed a breakthrough technology to recover landfill gas into biomethane.

The WAGABOX® is a landfill gas upgrading unit that delivers grid-compliant biomethane, regardless of the quality of the raw biogas. The biomethane produced by the WAGABOX® can be injected directly into the gas grid or used as fuel for vehicles.

Waga Energy builds, owns and operates the WAGABOX® units under long-term contracts with no investment required from the landfill owners. The biomethane generated is sold and the revenue is shared with the landfill owners.

Upgrading landfill gas — a waste-management by-product — positions Waga Energy to provide the most competitive biomethane on the market.

WAGABOX® units have a double impact to help fight climate change: they capture landfills gas — a major source of greenhouse gas emissions — and produce a renewable substitute for fossil-based natural gas.

Each new WAGABOX® unit marks additional progress toward a true energy transition and toward protecting our environment.

Landfills: a source of renewable gas to be harnessed

Human activities produce more than two billion tons of waste per year. Most of this waste is landfilled.

The decomposition of the organic matter trapped underground with the waste will spontaneously release a biogas in which methane is the main compound.

Methane (CH4), an appealing source of energy, is the main component in natural gas, a fossil-based gas widely used for heating and transportation. However, before this gas can be injected into utility grids, it must be purified.

Waga Energy has developed a simple, economical solution for upgrading landfill gas into grid-quality biomethane. This solution makes it possible to harness an abundant source of renewable gas: landfills.
