Waste Management Makes Fuel, Wax from Landfill Gas
Waste Management is making diesel fuel and wax from gas captured at a landfill in Oklahoma, News OK reports.
The East Oak Landfill was recently removed from the EPA’s Superfund list. It was placed on the cleanup list in 1992 because benzene, vinyl chloride and other contaminants were found in ground water.
Waste Management generates the equivalent of 9.8 GW of power through waste-to-energy projects and harvesting landfill gasses. In contrast, the US’ entire solar industry generates around 10 GW of power.
