Waste Today – Operations commence at Ameresco’s 12th RNG project with Republic

Ameresco Inc., a Framingham, Massachusetts-based cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, has achieved commercial operation at its landfill gas to renewable natural gas (RNG) plant at Republic Services’ Brickyard Landfill in Danville, Illinois.

The Brickyard facility has a gross nameplate of over 500,000 Dekatherms per year, with the potential to displace the production of traditional fuel sources, and is capable of processing 2,000 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) of raw landfill gas.

The Brickyard RNG facility captures naturally occurring landfill gas and transforms it into pipeline-grade RNG, a low-carbon transportation fuel. By capturing and utilizing landfill gas, the Brickyard facility generates renewable energy displacing fossil fuels used in vehicles like gas-powered cars and trucks.
