Advanced Disposal Launches Landfill Gas to Energy Plant in Georgia

Advanced Disposal Services Inc. has completed its landfill gas-to-energy facility in Dry Branch, Ga.

The Jacksonville, Fla.-based waste and recycling company said in a news release the new facility on its Wolf Creek Landfill cost $4.5 million. Advanced Disposal said it will provide significant environmental benefits to Georgia’s Twiggs County and the surrounding area by capturing landfill gas and using it as a fuel to produce green energy.

The facility will provide electricity to power 1,650 homes. The environmental gain equals removing 22,700 passenger vehicles from the highways. The installation began last year.

Advanced Disposal worked on the project with Oconee EMC and Green Power EMC, said Gerald Allen, vice president – landfills, for the company.
