Renewable Energy Magazine – Ameresco achieves commercial operation at landfill gas plant
Ameresco Inc, has announced it has achieved commercial operation at its landfill gas to renewable natural gas plant at Republic Services’ Benson Valley Landfill in Frankfort, Kentucky.
The Benson Valley facility has a gross nameplate in excess of 483,552 Dekatherms per year and is capable of processing 2,000 scfm of raw landfill gas.
Ameresco broke ground on the project in June 2022 and reached commercial operation in August 2023. As a result of this collaborative, long-term partnership, Benson Valley Landfill will reduce 27,440 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, a figure that is roughly equivalent to the carbon sequestered by planting 325,899 acres of forests or 31 million gallons of gasoline not being combusted.
