Landfill gas to diesel project moves forward

By Erin Kilgore, Hydrogen Fuel News.

The new GTL project is set to become operational in Oklahoma City by the first half of 2016.

Construction on the first of a series of GTL (gas-to-liquids) plants, which are part of the Envia project, and will be developed by multiple Houston-based companies, will soon commence and these plants will be designed to convert landfill gas into petroleum products with the goal being to not only produce cleaner fuel, but to also generate revenue.

The Envia project in Oklahoma City could be the turning point in the industry’s efforts to commercialize gas from landfills.
