Waste Dive – Archaea announces largest modular RNG plant yet at WM site; news from Terreva, Ameresco

April was a busy month for landfill operator and RNG partnerships, ending with an announcement from BP’s Archaea Energy of a new facility at a WM landfill.

Archaea has completed construction of a landfill-gas-to-RNG facility at the site in Shawnee, Kansas, the developer announced Tuesday. The facility, fully owned by Archaea, can generate enough gas to heat about 38,000 homes annually, according to the company.

The plant is the largest iteration yet of the company’s Archaea Modular Design plants to come online. Its first such facility, in Medora, Indiana, could process up to 3,200 standard cubic feet of landfill gas per minute. The Shawnee facility can process three times as much: 9,600 scfm. Archaea says it can also build a medium-sized version of the AMD plants that can process up to 6,400 scfm.
