The gas collected is burned in a gas turbine. The resulting heat produced in the turbine is then transferred to a second turbine which produces either more electricity or more heat. This type of system is known as the Combined-cycle natural gas system. The system is more energy efficient and a lot cheaper than nuclear and coal power plants (Miller, 2000).
