Waste Management Building Landfill Gas-to-Energy Plant in Ohio

Waste Management Inc. has begun construction of a landfill gas-to-energy project in Geneva, Ohio.

The Houston-based Waste Management said in a news release that once completed, the facility at its landfill in Ashtabula County, Ohio, will be able to generate 6.4 megawatts of electricity, enough to power more than 6,000 homes. The company expects the facility to begin operation by the end of the year.

"Waste Management is committed to the investments and innovative technology required to bring a state-of-the-art facility like this to the Ashtabula County area," said Jerry Ross, senior district manager for Waste Management Geneva Landfill.

Waste Management owns or operates more than 130 landfill gas-to-energy facilities in North America. The company said operates more facilities than any other company in the United States.

 Currently, Waste Management creates energy to power 1.1 million homes, and it is looking to double that to reach two million by 2020.
