Development of biogas facility in works at Chatham's Ridge Landfill

By Ellwood Shreve, Chatham Daily News.

Expanding the Ridge Landfill isn't the only future project Progressive Waste Solutions has planned for the site.

The company is currently working on plans to develop a biogas facility to convert landfill gas into pipeline-quality natural gas, said Wes Muir, PWS director of public and government relations.

He said the local project would be about the same size as the biogas facility Progressive operates at its Lachenaie Landfill in eastern Montreal, which is the largest of its kind in Canada and among the largest in North America.
