Waste-to-Energy Firm Building Unit in Oregon

JC-Biomethane LLC is building a waste-to-energy facility in Junction City, Ore.

The $4 million Green Lane Energy biogas facility should be completed by the end of October.

The Junction City-based company will compost organic waste such as food scraps and farm waste to generate methane gas to produce electricity, according to the Statesman Journal in Salem, Ore. Inquiries to the company were not immediately returned.

The waste will be processed by a 1.2 million gallon anaerobic digester. The facility’s turbine will create 1.95 megawatts of power per hour, the company said, enough for about 1,500 homes. The energy will be sold to Portland Gas & Electric through the Blachly-Lane Electric Cooperative.
