Explore our library of global case studies to learn how Capstone microturbines are aligning with businesses across various markets to improve their energy consumption through on-site power production. Since 1988, Capstone has shipped thousands of clean-and-green microturbines to customers around the world, logging millions of cumulative operating hours in the field. After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
A Capstone C200 Microturbine at the Fallowfield coal bed gas processing plant in Pittsburg Pennsylvania uses waste methane from the purification process to produce electricity while reducing the plant's carbon footprint. "The flow rate and methane concentration of the waste gas stream at the site are well suited to the capacity of Capstone's C200. "The microturbine is rated to operate at 33 percent electrical efficiency, based on a lower heating value. It's expected to have much lower maintenance costs and emissions than those from reciprocating engines."
