Veolia ES Solid Waste Inc. and its partners have completed the expansion of the gas-to-energy facility at Veolia’s landfill in Mauk, Ga., doubling its power capacity.
The subsidiary of Chicago-based Veolia Environmental Services North America Corp. and partners Energy Developments Inc. (EDI) and GreenPower EMC said in a news release the expansion brings the Taylor County Landfill project up to 8 megawatts of renewable energy. Veolia said the expansion makes the facility the largest landfill gas-to-energy operation in Georgia.
Nashville-based EDI, a subsidiary of the Australian firm Energy Development Ltd., developed the expansion with Veolia. There is a 15-year agreement to supply power to Tucker, Ga.-based GreenPower.
