Landfill gas-to-energy project opens in North Carolina

In the US, DTE Biomass Energy has completed its 9.6MW landfill gas-to-energy project at the Uwharrie Environmental Landfill in Mt. Gilead, North Carolina.

The landfill site at which it is located is owned and operated by Republic Services of North Carolina.
DTE Biomass Energy started operating the facility in September. Landfill gas at the site is used to generate renewable energy which is then sold to Duke Energy Progress.

The Uwharrie facility will more than double DTE Biomass' generation capacity in North Carolina, where it already operates six renewable energy projects.

'We have built strong relationships with several North Carolina-based contractors, Montgomery County, Republic Services and Duke Energy Progress,' comments Mark Cousino, president of DTE Biomass Energy. 'This collaboration was instrumental in the successful launch of the project and provides a solid foundation for continued growth of these partnerships moving forward.'
