Green Electric Energy

The revitalized green electric energy project evolved from a 60 megawatt power plant, originally opened in 1952, that was providing steam to adjacent steel plant and electricity to the grid while burning high emissions oil. In early 2000's, the Plant was reconfigured to burn captured landfill gas, drastically reducing the plant emission while eliminating the release of highly noxious polluting gas to the atmosphere from two nearby landfills. 

We served as the project development lead for combined cycle green energy conversion project. Gas emissions from two landfills is gathered, scrubbed, pumped and delivered to the power generation plant. Electricity and steam output is delivered to the steel mill and a wind turbine manufacturing facility. 

The project reduces massive amounts of harmful gas from decomposing landfill matter, capturing it for clean conversion into steam for industrial production and electricity.
