Irvine-based FlexEnergy this month will install its new clean-power platform at Lamb Canyon Landfill in Riverside.

Dubbed the Flex Powerstation, the platform – which is touted as a "turning point" in clean-energy production – is capable of converting a landfill's toxic and unusable methane gas into energy that emits almost no emissions.

"FlexEnergy will allow landfills to generate the power we need while efficiently removing a burden on the environment,” said Joseph Perry, CEO of FlexEnergy.

The project, which is a joint effort between the Riverside County Waste Management Department and the clean-tech firm, is the result of 10 years of development.

FlexEnergy, the agency and other environmental industry professionals will celebrate the installation with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Aug. 12.
