In the energy area, intensive efforts are being made over the last years to bridge the supply area with renewable energy sources and the demand side with energy conservation. Energy recovery from municipal solid waste landfills can play a contributing role in the solution of problems of both waste management and energy areas. The objective of this work is to analyze exergeticaly the electricity production from a landfill in the area of Volos, Greece and discuss how the extension of the landfill influences electricity production, something not studied so far. The electricity production potential was analyzed for every extension phase and comparative results are presented. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
