Waste Management, Houston, has announced plans to expand its landfill gas to energy practices adding 60 new facilities over the next five years. Its goal is to open 10 new facilities as well as begin developing 10 more by 2008.

“We’re setting an ambitious goal to greatly expand our current roster of these plants, which will help us responsibly allocate the company’s resources while providing renewable power to the communities and reigons in which we operate,” said Paul Pabor, vice president of renewable energy for Waste Management, in a press release.

The initiative calls for facilities at landfills in Texas, Virginia, New York, Colorado, Massachusetts, Illinois and Wisconsin.
