The European Commission has approved a French support scheme for up to 60 MW of new power plants that would generate electricity from landfill gas, the commission said on Friday.

The support will be in the form of a market price premium for plants with an installed capacity of 500 kW or more and a purchase price for smaller installations.

The scheme will also cover modernisation of landfill-gas plants already in operation.
