Clean energy project set for Big Run Landfill

By The Independent Online.

Plans are under way to develop a new, state-of-the-art clean energy facility at Big Run Landfill that will convert gas produced at the landfill into renewable natural gas, EnviroSolutions (ESI), owner of Big Run, according to a press release.announced Tuesday.  

Enerdyne Power Systems, a company that specializes in utilizing landfill gas (LFG) as a renewable fuel source, will work with ESI to construct the multi-million dollar facility that, at the landfill’s current gas collection rate, will produce enough natural gas to heat approximately 10,000 homes and save the annual equivalent CO2 emissions of 47 million gallons of gasoline.  

Gas captured by Big Run’s landfill gas collection system will be directed to a new, onsite gas plant where it will be processed, treated and upgraded to high BTU, pipeline-quality natural gas.
