California Leads in Landfill Gas-to-LNG Projects – MarketWatch (press release)

SUGAR LAND, TX, Jul 15, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) — Most states have government-backed incentives and regulations regarding air quality. Many of these are aimed at increasing the use of renewable energy.


California focuses on meeting ambitious environmental goals every year. The state’s environmental goals are reflected in a renewables portfolio standard (RPS), a Bioenergy Action Plan, and Executive Order S-3-05. The current state goal is to have electricity retail sellers produce 33% of their power from renewable sources by 2020. The Altamont landfill gas (LFG)-to-liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility near Livermore, California, is an example of a currently operating renewable energy project. The facility is a joint venture between Linde North America (Murray Hill, New Jersey) and Waste Management .

The facility is considered the world’s largest LFG-to-LNG plant.
