Solid Waste Landfills are Producing Pipeline Quality Natural Gas – WIH Resource Group


With improved processing technologies and attractive natural gas prices, more landfills are producing pipeline-quality gas. After several years of inactivity, the number of high-Btu landfill gas energy projects is increasing. Since 2006, 11 construction startups and three expansions of high-Btu projects have taken place, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP). … More Solid Waste Landfills are Producing Pipeline Quality Natural Gas – WIH Resource Group

New Partnership to Generate Gasoline from Garbage – WIH Resource Group


The largest solid waste handler in the U.S., Waste Management, Inc., is partnering with Valero Energy to invest in a technology that can turn biomass into high-octane gasoline.

The technology is called MixAlco™ and was developed by Terrabon. MixAlco uses solid waste from landfills as well as sewage to ferment it into organic salts, which are then refined into renewable gasoline, jet fuel or diesel. The refining process will take place at Valero facilities, and Waste Management will be involved in securing organic waste to produce the salts.
