LFGTE Facility Opens in Durham, N.C.

A landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE) project has opened at a Durham, N.C., landfill. The LFGTE facility was developed and constructed by Methane Power Inc.

The facility produces 3.17 megawatts of electricity, enough energy to support about 1,800 area homes. “We believe that by enabling municipalities to tap into their unused, onsite landfill gas resources to generate electricity, we are supporting local green job development while helping utilities meet their regional renewable energy production requirements,” said James Voss, president and CEO of Methane Power, in a press release.
