Landfill Gas Project Financing Falls Through in Oregon's Deschutes County

By Ted Shorack, The Bulletin.

A landfill gas-to-liquid fuel energy project fell through last week after the company involved was unable to meet prescribed deadlines made by Deschutes County. 

Waste to Energy Group LLC, the Irvine, California-based company proposing the project, repeatedly said it had trouble financing the estimated $20 million endeavor. 

The county chose to terminate a contract with the company Tuesday. Negotiations between the county and Waste to Energy for the project began in 2011.
