WCA, Morrow Renewables, and Enerdyne Power Systems Unveil New High BTU Landfill Gas-To-Energy Facility That Will Benefit Houston and Fort Bend Residents | Solid Waste & Recycling MagazinePosted on October 6, 2013 by DrRossH in Landfills and Disposal
The annual reduction of greenhouse gases attributable to this project is approximately equivalent to the carbon dioxide emissions from nearly 468,000 barrels of oil or 22,557,000 gallons of gasoline consumed, or the carbon sequestered annually by nearly 165,000 acres of pine or fir forests.
The ongoing production and development of this landfill gas facility will create dozens of jobs in the Houston area.
All this in a state dominated by big oil money. It shows the need for alternate energy sources and plastic waste can collected to supply some of this instead of simply landfilling this waste and losing its energy value.
