Republic builds landfill gas plant

Expanding the availability of renewable natural gas, Republic Services, Inc. has signed an agreement to recover landfill gas from its North Shelby Landfill in Millington, Tennessee.

Clean Energy Renewable Fuels will build the high-BTU plant to process landfill gas and inject it into the U.S. natural gas network.

During the first year of operation, the plant is anticipated to produce approximately four million diesel gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas fuel annually.
