Missouri Landfill to Supply Methane to Cement Plant

Republic  Services’ Courtney Ridge Landfill in Sugar Creek, Mo., will provide landfill gas to the neighboring Lafarge-Sugar Creek Cement Plant. The plant will use the gas to fire its kiln during cement production. Plant officials say using the gas will allow the facility to use 20 percent less coal.

“Landfill gas projects are a win-win opportunity for all parties involved, including the landfill owner/operators, the local utility, the local government, and the surrounding community,” said Republic Area President Jeff Kintzle in a press release. “The landfill gas utilization project successfully takes advantage of a resource that would have otherwise been wasted, and in the process, produces benefits for the environment, the local community, the cement plant and the landfill.”
