“Republic is very excited to add this project to our portfolio of more than 80 landfill-gas-to-energy projects,” said Bill Held, senior director of renewable energy for Republic, in a press release. “It complements our operations in the Atlanta area and the services and relationships we have with our customers there. [It also] furthers our goals of contributing to energy independence, sustainability and environmental stewardship,”
GES paid $3.35 million for the rights to the gas and also will pay royalties based on the revenues from the sale of the processed gas.
“Global Energy intends to work with a number of waste service providers to develop [similar] projects at landfills across the Southeast United States,” said Mike Ellis, president of GES, in a press release.
