Kimberly-Clark Pumps Landfill Methane To Manufacturing Facility
Kimberly-Clark will use methane gas from a landfill to generate steam for a Jackson, South Carolina manufacturing facility, AP reports.
The methane gas will be released by waste decomposition at the Three Rivers Solid Waste Authority landfill. Siemens Building Technologies is designing and building the gas collection facility and 15-mile pipeline from the landfill to the manufacturing facility.
The Kimberly-Clark plant makes Kleenex facial tissue, Cottonelle and Scott bathroom tissue, Huggies diapers and Pull-Ups training pants, Fox reports. When the project becomes operational in April 2008, it will provide 1,800 cubic feet of landfill gas per minute to fuel steam boilers at the Beech Island facility.
