Dane County Landfill Biogas-to-RNG Project's Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi stood at the county landfill today with County Board members and project leaders to announce that Dane County has officially started injecting renewable natural gas (RNG) into its pipeline, signaling the completion of its landfill biogas project. With a ribbon cutting to mark the occasion this Earth Week, the county's landfill biogas facility is now able to turn trash and cow manure into renewable fuel and inject it into the interstate transmission pipeline so it can be bought and sold to power fleets of RNG vehicles locally and across the United States.

'It's exciting to have this first-of-its-kind project reach the finish line so our area can begin to reap the financial and environmental benefits of the renewable fuel our landfill now generates,' said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. 'A huge thank you goes out to our partners and dedicated staff who made this possible. Dane County's landfill biogas facility and offloading station will advance our clean lakes and air efforts and also benefit Dane County taxpayers.'
