Waste, Energy Firms Partner for Indiana Landfill Gas Project

By Allan Gerlat, Waste 360.

Waste and recycling firm Randolph Farms Inc. and Hoosier Energy are partnering on the construction of a landfill gas to energy facility at the Randolph Farms Landfill near Modoc, Ind.

Bloomington, Ind.-based Hoosier Energy will build the Cabin Creek 4-megawatt landfill gas operation with the Kalamazoo, Mich.-based Randolph Farms at its landfill in rural east-central Indiana.

The companies expect construction of the $12 million operation to begin in the fall of 2016, and power production to begin in early 2017, according to a news release. To reduce risk to member systems and co-op consumers, funding will come from low-cost clean renewable energy bonds.
