Biogas, landfill gas users win EPA onsite green power awards

By Anna Simet, Biomass Magazine.

The U.S. EPA has announced its annual Green Power Leadership Awards, this year recognizing 22 Green Power Partners and three renewable energy suppliers across the country.

Award winners are being recognized for their efforts in expanding the domestic renewable energy market through generating or purchasing green power.

All three winners in the onsite generation category were users of landfill gas or biogas—the city of Hayward, California, for its water pollution control facility; General Motors for its Ft. Wayne plant in Warren, Michigan, and New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado.
