Landfill gas to electricity project opens in Georgia

Taylor County, Ga., June 27, 2012 — Nashville-based Energy Developments, Inc., Green Power EMC and Veolia ES Solid Waste, Inc. completed the expansion of EDI's landfill gas to electricity plant located on Veolia's Taylor County Landfill in Mauk, Georgia.

Renewable power generated from this facility will be sold to Green Power EMC under a 15-year power purchase agreement.

The original landfill gas to electricity facility was expanded from 4 MW to 8 MW of renewable electricity making it the largest landfill gas to electricity facility in Georgia.

Landfill gas, which is created when organic material naturally decomposes in a landfill, consists of about 50 percent methane. A reliable and readily available local alternative to fossil fuels, landfill gas can be converted to generate electricity, heat or steam, or used as an alternative vehicle fuel.
