Ontario landfill gas project celebrates milestone

By Walker Environmental Group, for Biomass Magazine. 

Walker Environmental Group is celebrating a significant milestone in its efforts to reduce carbon emissions and help Ontario tackle climate change. In Thorold, Ontario, WEG's landfill gas utilization partnership company has eliminated the need for more than 200 million cubic meters of natural gas since 2002 by providing landfill gas to nearby Resolute Forest Products, where 100 percent recycled newsprint is manufactured. The energy from the landfill gas, which would otherwise have been wasted, is equivalent to the natural gas used by approximately 80,000 Ontario homes.
