EPA LMOP & Natural Gas STAR Webinar: Franklin County Landfill Gas to Pipeline RNG Project

2:00pm EST / 11:00am Pacific

This webinar will provide an overview of this successful project that upgrades LFG into pipeline quality RNG for vehicle fuel.

In February 2014, the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio, in a public-private partnership with Aria Energy, established a landfill gas to RNG project at the Franklin County Landfill in Grove City, Ohio. The project was expanded in 2015 to process 6.8 mmscfd of LFG. The LFG is collected, processed, and refined at Aria's high-Btu gas upgrading facility. From there, it is injected into a Columbia Gas of Ohio (a NiSource company) pipeline for sale in the vehicle fuel markets.
