New Bedford Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project

The New Bedford Landfill Gas-to-Energy project is a renewable energy project that helps reduce the amount of energy we need to produce from dirty fuel sources like coal and oil.  The benefits of this project are two-fold: not only does it flare methane, which is about 23 times more potent as New Bedforda greenhouse gas at capturing heat, it provides fuel for four reciprocating internal combustion engine-generators.  The project produces both power for the regional electricity grid and also reduces the amount of methane released into our atmosphere. The destruction of methane from these types of projects is important in the fight against climate change because methane is far more efficient as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. One of the real concerns about climate change is that as the frozen tundra of areas such as Siberia and Northern Canada melt, an enormous amount of methane - which was previously trapped in the permafrost - will be released into our atmosphere. The specific environmental benefits of the New Bedford Landfill project are significantly decreased methane and carbon dioxide emissions, waste management, odor control and less localized air pollution, reduction of local water pollution, and clean energy production. This third-party verified carbon offset project meets American Carbon Registry / Environmental Resources Trust’s Monitoring, Reporting & Verification Protocol and the Chicago Climate Exchange standards.  To learn more about our renewable energy projects, please visit them here.
