Fortistar Planning Minn. Landfill RNG Plant (Ind. Report)
Fortistar
Date: 2021-04-14
In the Empire State, White Plains--based Fortistar is reporting plans to construct and operate a new roughly $40 million renewable natural gas (RNG) plant at the Pine Bend Sanitary Landfill, in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

Landfill owner Republic Services will lease Fortistar the land for the 12,000 square-foot facility which is expected to be operational by March 2022. (Source: Fortistar,PR, Star Tribune, 13 Apr., 2021) Contact: Forttistar, Mark Comora, CEO, (914) 421-4937, MComora@fortistar.com, www.fortistar.com

Canada Outlines GHG Credit Trading System (Ind. Report)
Environment and Climate Change Canada
Date: 2021-03-10
Reporting from Ottawa, Environment and Climate Change Canada has announced draft regulations to establish the market-based Federal Greenhouse Gas Offset System to reduce carbon emissions, spur innovation and private-sector investment in economic activities that lead to further emissions reductions and create jobs.

The offset rules will be part of the 2018 Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, which enabled a sweeping tax on emissions on everything from industrial pollution to home-heating fuel, and will support a domestic carbon trading market under Canada's carbon price for industry -- the Output-Based Pricing System (OBPS) -- under which regulated facilities that exceed their emission limits can provide compensation by purchasing federal offset credits -- an additional lower-cost option -- generated from activities not already incentivized by carbon pollution pricing.

Once established, the Federal Greenhouse Gas Offset System will stimulate demand for projects across Canada that reduce greenhouse gases and generate federal offset credits. The ability to generate and sell federal offset credits creates opportunities for farmers, foresters, Indigenous communities, municipalities, and other project developers to earn revenues from greenhouse-gas reductions and removals.

Protocols for high priority project types are currently under development in parallel to the regulation to give industries additional lower-cost compliance options. For example, under the Landfill Methane Management Protocol, which is currently under development, a municipality could install technology to collect methane that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. The municipality could earn federal offset credits, which it could sell to industrial facilities regulated under the Output-Based Pricing System. Canada is aiming for net-zero emissions by 2050.

Oregon Aims to Cut Landfill Methane Emissions (Reg. & Leg.)
Oregon Department of Environmental Quality
Date: 2021-01-13
Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has proposed rule changes to landfills under Gov. Kate Brown's Exec. Order 20-04, addressing the effects of climate change and landfills.

The proposed rule, which would affect methane gas emissions from landfills and require that landfills work on reducing methane emissions, would align the state's methane gas emission more with the most stringent requirements of neighboring states, including California which are the most stringent amongst neighboring states.

Mid-size landfills of 450,000 to 2.5 million tons of waste would be required to model their potential methane gas emissions, if the modeling exceeds a threshold of emissions then they would be required to install a landfill gas collection and control system.

According to the DEQ, methane gas emissions is one of the highest greenhouse gas emitters in the state. In 2017, six of the 25 largest stationary sources of methane gas emissions in Oregon were landfills.

Landfill Gas to Fuel San Antonio Bus Fleet (Ind. Report)
CPS Energy,EDL
Date: 2021-01-04
In the Lone Star State, San Antonio Transit Bus fleet operator VIA, CPS Energy and Australian energy company EDL are reporting an initiative that will provide CPS Energy with natural gas from the San Antonio Tessman Road landfill as part of a renewable fuel credit swap.

For the project, EDL will convert its existing landfill gas power plant at the Tessman Road landfill in San Antonio to a plant that can inject pipeline-quality gas into CPS Energy's system. Although the landfill methane will make up only 1 to 2 pct of the entire supply in CPS Energy's distribution system, it is expected to offset the fossil fuel-derived natural gas needed for an estimated 75 pct of VIA's fleet of 502 buses.

The RNG plant is expected to begin operations in Q3 2021. According to the EPA, there were 67 active landfill RNG projects across the U.S. in 2020.

Fortistar Florida RNG Plant Construction Underway (Ind. Report)
Fortistar
Date: 2020-12-16
White Plains, New York-based Fortistar reports construction is underway on a facility in Raiford, Florida, that will capture and convert approximately 1,900 dekatherms per day of landfill methane into renewable natural gas (RNG).

The project, formally known as the New River RNG Project, will collect naturally occurring methane from the New River Solid Waste Association (NRSWA) municipal solid waste landfill, convert it to RNG and use it to fuel natural gas vehicles via TruStar Energy, a Fortistar company. At full output, the New River facility will extract 2,500 standard cubic feet per minute of landfill gas and produce 5.1 million gas gallon equivalents (GGE) of RNG per year.

Consumers Energy Aims for Net-Zero Carbon Emissions (Ind Report)
Consumers Energy
Date: 2020-03-04
In its 2019 Clean Energy Plan, Jackson, Michigan-headquartered Consumers Energy announced it aimed to reduce 90 pct of the carbon emissions it generates by eliminating the use of coal and working with customers to use energy more efficiently in an effort to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

Consumers previously committed to being coal-free by 2040 in its Integrated Resource Plan which included building 6,000 MW of new solar by 2030. The utility also launched a public outreach campaign focused on energy efficiency. The new commitment will supplement Consumers' existing plan to eliminate coal, expand renewable energy resources and help customers reduce their energy use. Consumers also may offset further emissions through strategies such as carbon sequestration, landfill methane capture or large-scale tree planting.

Mo. Landfill Board Seeking Methane Purchaser (Ind. Report)
Landfill Methane
Date: 2019-07-01
In the Show Me State, the Neosho NEOSHO Newton/McDonald County Landfill reports it is seeking a purchaser for methane - landfill gas from its 1972 vintage landfill which was capped and closed in 1996.

The landfill's previous customer was USA Metal Recycling which used the excess methane as a fuel source for melting metals. A new buyer would also extend the board's ability to maintain the landfill. Revenue from methane sales was reinvested back into the landfill's operation, but that budgetis expected run dry in about seven years.

PEI Landfill Gas Project Wins Low-Carbon Energy Funding (Funding)
Enwave Energy Corporation
Date: 2019-03-25
Toronto-headquartered Enwave Energy Corporation reports it is inline to receive as much as $3.5 million in funding through the Government of Canada's Low Carbon Energy Fund to upgrade and expand an existing waste-to-energy system that will divert an additional 23,000 tonnes of organic waste from the Charlottetown District Energy System regional landfill in Prince Edward Island. The project will reduce landfill methane emissions, increase annual energy production, and reduce PEI's fuel oil consumption.

According to Clean Energy Canada, the energy-efficiency measures in Canada's climate plan will help improve Canada's economy and environment between now and 2030 by creating 118,000 new jobs, boosting the nation's GDP by $356 billion, and save Canadian households an average of $114 a year.

The Low Carbon Economy Fund Challenge provides over $500 million in funding to support projects that will leverage ingenuity across the country to reduce emissions and generate clean growth.
