Through stronger municipal landfill standards, the USA-EPA
*can slash methane emissions,
*protect communities, and
*make progress on climate

The Whole World needs to get on board!

Who says Africa does not contribute to the GHGs ?
The Whole world does!!!
Your Trash Is producing Methane in your Landfill.

Here is a man who says one very interesting thing ………


…………………………….He says:

“The impact is 5 million people are breathing much better air. A significant amount of methane that would have gone into the environment is averted. It has a real impact that you’re able to feel , because the air, the toxic air that you’ve been breathing……”

Why is this statement so important? It proves that wherever there are people throwing away garbage in a garbage dump, there is “landfill gas” being generated. It is smelly and at least 1/2 Methane! No matter where a garbage dump is! Even in Africa. They too are seeping methane into the atmosphere if they do not capture it and use it for cleaner energy.

HOWEVER, My main interest is the Methane. Rather than burn the garbage – Invest in Capturing the methane!!!!! Use it to make fuel and electricity. This is being done more and more world wide. It is a much cleaner for our air, more effective and a more efficient way to use a Garbage Dump “Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)”……..

Green Infrastructure: Waste Management

The investment opportunity for the waste management industry is growing as the population increases and companies utilize advanced technologies.

FEB 6, 2024 – from Nasdaq -……Waste Management Inc. utilizes technology by developing green infrastructure systems that collect the greenhouse gases generated from its landfills, which can then be turned into renewable energy. In 2022, out of Waste Management’s captured landfill gas, 45% was used to generate renewable energy. This reduces dependence on fossil fuel energy sources and can generate revenue through the sale of converted renewable energy.

The investment case for waste management companies, like Republic Services and Waste Management Inc., is supported by their adoption of advanced technology, such as robotics, AI, and landfill-gas capture. Additionally, growing populations and economies are driving demand for waste management, while legislation, regulations, and consumers are pushing for this to be done using sustainable solutions. These factors are contributing to the growth of the waste management market globally…

BENEFITS OF RNG:

logo- Cleaner Energy Investments! Time to invest in your Landfill!

RENEWABLE NATURAL GAS (RNG) FOR TRANSPORTATION

  • Converts waste to a valuable product
  • Reduces GHG emissions
  • Produces domestic, renewable fuel from plentiful feedstocks
  • Creates jobs
  • Reduces odor and runoff
  • Enhances fuel diversity
  • Provides a steady supply of renewable energy
  • Supports organizations’ and fleets’ sustainability goals
  • Uses existing technologies and natural gas infrastructure

Reduces GHG emissions. On a lifecycle basis, RNG can reduce GHG emissions by 95% as compared to diesel, giving it a nearly net zero carbon impact.

ECONOMIC INCENTIVES AND COSTS

  • How does the source of RNG affect its cost? – Because of their size and
    ability to produce biogas without a freestanding digester, landfills can produce RNG at an average cost of roughly $0.90–$1.00/diesel gal equivalent (dge). For individual projects, the cost can range from $0.40/dge to $2.00/dge. …
  • Investors, equipment suppliers, and developers Demand for RNG is growing. Producing, installing, and operating the necessary equipment creates additional sources of revenue, as well as employment opportunities. …
  • RNG retailers, resellers, or utilities In order to replace fossil fuels, utilities, resellers, and retailers that have significantly invested in them, can add RNG. This offers the possibility of reducing their products’ net carbon intensity. …
  • Fleets and other end users – When used in heavy-duty trucks, lower carbon RNG is typically no more—and potentially less—expensive than fossil NG or diesel. Advantages: RNG is not tied to uncertain or volatile fuel markets, unproven technologies, or the need for extensive new infrastructure. …
  • Communities and local officials – Manufacturing, installing, and operating equipment to process, store, and transport RNG creates jobs. Those Green jobs generate tax revenues. RNG qualifies for several types of tax credits and other incentives. …
  • Federal incentives – The Internal Revenue Service Section 45 Production Tax Credit is available to producers who convert biogas to electricity, while the Alternative Fuel Excise Tax Credit is available to producers of vehicle fuel. RNG produced from landfill gas or biogas produced at farms or WRRFs qualifies as a cellulosic biofuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). …
  • State incentives – RNG may also qualify for state incentives, the most valuable of which are credits under California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and Oregon’s Clean Fuel Standard (CFS). Both provide significant price support for RNG produced with a low carbon intensity (a reduction in CO2 emissions as compared with the status quo).

How Trash Becomes Energy
The gas created and captured in a Landfill is used for energy production! From methane to megawatts, Potrero Hills Landfill operated by Waste Connections is harvesting gas emissions as a renewable energy source for electricity since 2016. Almost forty percent of the power for homes and industry in the City of Suisun comes from the Potrero Hills Landfill. It produces enough electricity to supply approximately 10,000 homes.

How does the City use Landfill Gas?
Since 1992, the Clover Bar Landfill has been capturing landfill gas to produce electricity. Enough gas is captured each year to satisfy the electricity demands of approximately 4,600 homes. To date, over 101 gas wells have been drilled into the landfill’s decomposing waste, which are connected to a pipe network that conveys the gas to a Landfill Gas Recovery Plant, owned by Capital Power, on the Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) site where it is cleaned of impurities.  For the first 10 years the cleaned gas was piped to a nearby Epcor electrical generating station.  In 2005 Epcor built smaller generators right next to the Landfill Gas Recovery Plant.

Recycling Center in Abu Dabi

August 2022 – …To understand the potential business case of landfill gas to energy conversion, Tadweer has launched a feasibility study for one of its waste management facilities in Abu Dhabi, located at Al Dhafra.

The landfill in Dhafra treated over 25,000 tons of waste last year, with nearly half of the waste extracted for the purpose of reuse and recycling. By also using the landfill’s gas, the waste management facility would take a next step in upping its environmental efforts.

Landfill gas to energy
According to data from several leading waste management institutes worldwide, solid waste landfills are one of the largest human-generated sources of methane emissions. Reducing methane emissions from landfills is therefore one of the most effective ways for waste companies to lower their CO2 footprint.


The first Dutch bio-LNG installation: Construction has started

(LNG = Liquid Natural Gas, which is the way that “natural gas” is shipped from region to region world wide.)

November 2020 – …The development of this production location in Amsterdam Westpoort paves the way for Dutch bio-LNG. The three initiators each fulfill a role. Renewi collects organic waste throughout the Netherlands, processes this waste and converts it into biogas. The Nordsol installation then turns this biogas into bio-LNG. Finally, Shell sells this bio-LNG at its LNG filling stations.

First dutch bio-lng installation produces millionths kilogram
May 2022 – The Netherlands’ first bio-LNG plant has now achieved a production milestone of one million kilograms, enabling about four million kilometers of sustainable transport with heavy-duty trucks. For initiators Nordsol, Renewi and Shell, this milestone is an important proof point that “sustainable” heavy-duty road transport is possible, today.

Nordsol’s bio-LNG plant produces 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year and captures 6.3 kilotons of biogenic CO2.

As a renewable replacement for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), bio-LNG offers similar advantages versus diesel, including reduced carbon dioxide emission, lower engine sound, lower nitrogen oxide emission, and significantly less particulate matter emission. Well-to-wheel, the GHG emissions balance of bio-LNG can be even negative, depending on feedstock and production methodology. A Cleaner Energy Investments!

Saving the planet and “picking fights” in the process

Climate change provisions in new
U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
antagonizes allies

February, 2023….Economists fear “a subsidy war” could erupt. In 2020, the EU passed the European Green Deal, which set aside €503 billion for Cleaner Energy Investments over the next 10 years. In January [2023], European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen laid out a New Green Deal Industrial Plan to counter the IRA (that Al Gore suggests will reach $1.2 trillion in incentives), which increased the EU incentives from the original proposal. … Japan and South Korea also have incentive programs of various sizes and structures for green industries.

A race to the bottom to attract green industries, the argument goes, will lead to duplication and waste. So what? The world needs as many Cleaner Energy Investments as can be mustered; any waste from competing subsidies will be utterly overwhelmed by the costs of climate change. …. More importantly, the classic argument about comparative advantage — let China produce solar panels as it can make more for the same amount of money — misses the key point: China created that advantage and there are geopolitical advantages, not calculable, that flow from that laissez faire mentality.
