Renewable Natural Gas
Renewable natural gas: Is there such a thing? There is at the Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park. The Innovative Energy Systems/Landfill Energy Systems’ renewable natural gas plant is the second green energy operation at the park to produce a domestic energy source, in addition to the landfill gas-to-energy plant.
At the renewable natural gas plant, landfill gas derived methane, provided by Seneca Meadows, is purified to produce up to 3,000 standard cubic feet per minute of pipeline quality “natural gas.” The process is cleaner than fossil fuel derived energy processes, thereby reducing emissions and conserving natural resources.
The Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park is the first location in the United States to host both a landfill gas supplied renewable natural gas plant and a landfill gas-to-energy plant.
