Kleangas Energy to Buy Landfill Gas to Energy Operation

Kleangas Energy Technologies Inc. has made a filing with the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) to acquire an energy company that converts landfill gas to electricity.

The Tampa, Fla.-based Kleangas, an alternative energy company, has filed an 8K with the SEC for the plant that produces about 15,000 metric tons of pellets annually and generates 2.4 megawatts of electricity, according to a news release. The power is sold to a major utility company, and the facility also uses the heat generated from the landfill gas burning in the drying process to create wood pellets, which are used a fuel alternative to create electricity.

Kleangas said it will increase the production in both electricity and wood pellets during the next 12 months.
