2011 could be a big year for Irvine’s FlexEnergy LLC, a startup that’s hoping to reach viability on a system that turns methane gas from landfills into electrical power.
The company has test projects in place, its first commercial deal in the works, a recent $8 million round of funding and expansion plans for its headquarters.
FlexEnergy’s near-term goal is to produce its Flex Powerstation, a turbine and other equipment that breaks down methane gases and converts them to electricity with nearly no emissions.
