Rumpke partners with Energy Developments for Ohio LFG project

By Cole Rosengren, Waste Dive. 

Dive Brief:

  • Rumpke has teamed up with Energy Developments to build a landfill gas-to-energy facility at the Brown County Landfill in Georgetown, OH, as reported by Waste 360.
  • Gas is currently collected through 80 wells at the site and flared. The new facility will use this gas to produce 4.8 MW of electricity, enough to power about 3,000 homes, that will go to American Municipal Power.
  • The $8 million facility, which will be owned and operated by Energy Developments, is expected to be operational in April 2017.
