Waste gas could power Guernsey homes

Gas from Guernsey's Mont Cuet landfill site could be used to create electricity for hundreds of homes.

Currently the gas, a mix of methane and carbon dioxide created by the waste decomposing, is collected by 27 wells and burnt off.

A project to use it to produce electricity could be completed by the end of 2014 and last for 10 years.
