    Betsy Lillian for NGTNews June 6, 2018 - Waste Management has unveiled a $30 million RNG facility in Louisville, KY.

    The new Outer Loop Recycling and Disposal Facility processes up to 5,000 standard cubic feet per minute of incoming landfill gas and turns it into usable RNG. This equates to about 2,500 mmbtu per day of RNG, or 18,000 diesel gallon equivalents (DGE) per day, enough to fuel approximately 800 of Waste Management s CNG collection trucks.

    The company notes that the RNG facility serves as a model for a planned rollout of additional facilities in the coming years. Waste Management also operates RNG facilities in Illinois (Milam Landfill) and Ohio (American Landfill) says Jim Trevathan, Waste Management s executive vice president and chief operating officer.

    Waste Management s 110 CNG stations deliver 60 million DGEs of natural gas each year. Its fleet of 6,700 natural gas trucks represents 30 per cent of the company s overall collection fleet. Waste Management says it is continuing to convert its fleet from diesel to natural gas; approximately 80% of its new truck purchases are now powered by natural gas.
