Fujifilm To Power Manufacturing Facility With Methane

Fujifilm will begin using methane gas from a South Carolina landfill to power its nearby manufacturing center, CNET reports. By 2008 it plans to power between 32 and 44 percent of its Greenwood, S.C., facility with energy from methane gas from a landfill. The effort is designed to save as much as 50 percent on energy costs annually. The project will help Fujifilm reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent.

Methane Credit will invest about $2 million to convert the gas over the 10-year life of the project contract. Fujifilm’s costs are related primarily to converting two natural gas boilers which will cost about $200,000.

BMW Manufacturing’s methane gas program, also in South Carolina, received attention earlier this year when it won an EPA award.
