Rockingham County Landfill Gas Combustion Project
Project type : Landfill Gas Capture
Project Location : VA
Standard : VCS
The Project consists of two stages, both implemented at the Rockingham County Landfill. Stage one (1) of the Project is the installation of an active gas collection system in Phases 1 and 2 of the Landfill. During this stage, the gas captured from this system is flared, thereby converting methane to biogenic CO2. As part of this project phase, in March 2008 16 wells were installed on the Phase 1 and Phase 2 areas of the Landfill and four leachate collection system cleanout pipes were connected to the system. Stage two (2) of the Project involves the implementation of a beneficial use project whereby the captured biogas is transported by pipeline approximately 2.5 miles to the Rockingham Memorial Hospital (the “Hospital”) for use in its boilers.
