Bioenergy Insight – Ameresco Landfill Gas-to-RNG Plant Operational

Ameresco has achieved commercial operations at its landfill gas-to-RNG plant in Houston, Texas.

The plant, located at Republic Services’ McCarty Road Landfill, has an installed capacity of over 1.1 million dekatherms per year and can process 4,500 standard cubic feet per minute of raw landfill gas.

After breaking ground on the project in the Q2 2020, the Ameresco team successfully navigated the construction challenges and equipment delays associated with COVID-19 and an active hurricane season to reach mechanical completion in early December, and commercial operations in May this year.

The landfill gas-to-RNG project creates clean energy resources for the regional economy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions while contributing to Republic Services’ long-term sustainability goal to beneficially reuse 50% more landfill gas by 2030.
