US Gain completes renewable natural gas project in Tennessee
Sustainable energy solutions provider US Gain has completed its sixth renewable natural gas (RNG) landfill development project, located in Tennessee.
The Carter Valley Landfill, owned by Republic Services and located in Church Hill, is now able to capture and clean methane gas, which is then converted to RNG and sold to the transport fuel sector.
The project was achieved through a collaboration between Tennessee Renewable Group (TRG), Toro Energy and US Gain.
“Our involvement is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of each RNG development project, which is part of the value we bring to the table,” said Mike Koel, president of US Gain. “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.”
According to the release, the landfill development project will generate enough RNG to fuel over 80 Class 8 trucks per day and will displace approximately 1.5 million gallons of diesel per year.
“The Carter Valley project is a great example of redevelopment and utilisation of smaller gas-producing landfills that had older technology installed,” added David Mauney, president of TRG.
