Vision RNG (VRNG) announced that its Landfill Gas (LFG) to Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) project at Meridian Waste’s Eagle Ridge Landfill in Bowling Green, Missouri is now fully operational.
The facility will use 1,500 scfm of LFG to produce up to 375,000 MMBtu of RNG annually, which will be injected into nearby interstate natural gas pipelines and used across the United States for transportation fuel and other sustainability initiatives.
“Vision RNG is proud to partner with Meridian Waste and is extremely proud of being able to bring this LFG to RNG project online. It is the first of its kind in the State of Missouri,” said Bill Johnson, VRNG CEO. “This is the first of several LFG to RNG projects VRNG will be bringing online, including projects in Kentucky, Alabama, South Carolina, and Oklahoma.”
The facility’s production of RNG will contribute several environmental and economic benefits, including lowering methane emissions, reducing fossil fuel dependence, and utilizing the current natural gas infrastructure.
“In Missouri and across our company footprint, Meridian Waste is committed to being a good neighbor, and a steward of the environment,” stated Gregg Asciutto, Area President - Missouri. “By converting our landfill gas into pipeline quality clean energy, we manage potential odors more effectively, reduce Greenhouse gas emissions, and capture a once wasted renewable resource to fuel more efficient trucks and operations throughout the region.”
