U.S. Gain announced the completion of its sixth renewable natural gas landfill development project located in Church Hill, Tennessee. Methane gas from Carter Valley Landfill, which is owned by Republic Services, Inc. is being captured and cleaned, and then converted to biomethane for the transportation sector.
Collaborative efforts from Tennessee Renewable Group (TRG), a leading developer and marketer of renewable natural gas production; Toro Energy, another leader in renewable gas-to-energy development; and U.S. Gain enabled the success of this project.
“Our involvement is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of each biomethane development project, which is part of the value we bring to the table,” said Mike Koel, president of U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture, Inc. “In this case, we invested capital to support ongoing costs related to development of the Carter Valley Landfill and are pleased to see it cross the finish line.”
The TRG/U.S. Gain project will generate enough biomethane to fuel more than 80 class 8 trucks daily, displacing almost 1,500,000 gallons of diesel annually. “The Carter Valley project is a great example of redevelopment and utilization of smaller gas-producing landfills that had older technology installed,” commented David Mauney, president of TRG.
