By Tom Bailey, Daily Memphian.
A company that converts the methane given off by landfills into renewable natural gas apparently has plans for a $3.3 million construction project near the South Shelby Landfill in Memphis, records indicate.
South Shelby RNG LLC applied for a construction permit Tuesday for 4569 E. Holmes Road, property which is adjacent to the South Shelby Landfill operated by Republic Services. The “RNG” stands for renewable natural gas.
The Detroit-area telephone number for Shelby RNG LLC belongs to Aria Energy. The company has similar conversion facilities at landfills across the country, including at Republic’s North Shelby Landfill in Millington.
