The Robeson County Landfill 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.
Take the first step.
Start small. Be conscious of the impact your actions have on the environment and figure out what you can do to lessen the blow. Calculate, conserve, and offset.
