Two new projects for your consideration

This week we have two new projects open for public comment.

The Robeson County Landfill in St. Pauls, North Carolina, began operating a landfill gas collection and flaring project in July 2008. Robeson County is negotiating with potential end-users who will use the landfill gas for industrial process heat or for electricity generation. In the meantime, the methane is being destroyed in a flare, and revenue from carbon offsets is the only funding the project receives. Let us know what you think.

The city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, began operating a landfill methane destruction project in April 2006. To date, the methane has been flared, although a project is in the works to send the gas via pipeline to a nearby ethanol plant. As always, your comments are welcome.
