From Trash to Gas: New LNG Plant Opens in Altamont, Calif.November 19, 2009
Today’s trash might become tomorrow’s gas if you’re living in California.
California opened the largest landfill gas to liquefied natural gas facility in the world this week in Altamont, which is in Northern California. At the facility, gas is collected from the natural decomposition of organic landfill waste. This process isn’t inexpensive: funding for the facility came in part from a $600,000 grant from the California Air Resources Board and $740,000 from the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
