The Solid Waste Association of Central Ohio (SWACO) has opened an $18 million compressed natural gas (CNG) facility in Grove City, Ohio. The facility, a partnership with FirmGreen Fuels, Newport Beach, Calif., will convert landfill gas from SWACO’s Franklin County Landfill.
“What once was an idea is now fuel to power America’s future” said Ron Mills, executive director of SWACO, in a press release. “What was once waste is now energy to drive our economy. What once was considered the end of the line is now a starting point for economic development.
The facility will produce fuel for SWACO vehicles and additional natural gas to generate electricity for its own operations.
