    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.

          Replacing Fossil Fuels with Natural Gas

          In 2019, Waste Management committed to finding new and innovative ways to capture clean-burning natural gas from landfills and use it to fuel its trucks.

          Closed Landfills Become Solar Energy Fields

          Waste Management has reclaimed former landfill space to turn into solar fields. The closed landfills are ideal for these projects because of their large scale and close proximity to existing infrastructure.

              Roselynne Reyes for HDT Trucking Info April 14, 2020 - How Two Fleets Set and Achieved Sustainability Goals

              Waste Management purchased its first natural gas trucks in California in 1992 and began transitioning its entire fleet to natural gas in 2009. Currently, Waste Management operates the largest heavy-duty natural gas truck fleet of its kind in North America. At the end of 2019, Waste Management’s fleet included 8,924 natural gas trucks, and the company operated 145 fueling stations in North America, with 25 open to the public. Currently, 60% of the company’s fleet is CNG, of which 40% is fueled by renewable natural gas.

              “Currently, natural gas is the most economical and environmentally beneficial choice for our fleet, particularly when we can use renewable natural gas." explains Susan Robinson, senior director of policy and sustainability.
