bp’s Archaea Energy has introduced its Archaea Modular Design (AMD) renewable natural gas (RNG) plant in Medora, Indiana, adjacent to Rumpke Waste and Recycling’s landfill.
The plant captures landfill gas from Rumpke’s landfill and converts it to electricity, heat, or renewable natural gas, providing cleaner air, less odor, and more sustainable energy as compared to traditional fossil fuel energy using the AMD design. The design allows plants to be built on skids with interchangeable components.
According to the EPA’s Landfill Gas Energy Benefits Calculator, the plant holds a capacity to process 3,200 cubic feet of landfill gas per minute (scfm) into RNG, enough gas to heat over 13,000 homes annually.
“This is a powerful step forward in our net zero journey to capture landfill emissions and provide customers with lower emission, lower carbon fuel,” said Starlee Sykes, CEO of Archaea Energy. “Our goal is to safely bring several AMD plants online this year.”
bp expects to deliver around $2 billion EBITDA in 2025. With bioenergy as one of the five transition growth components amongst convenience, EV charging, renewables & power, and hydrogen, the company is targeting more than $4 billion by 2030.
bp expects to invest up to $8 billion in its transition growth businesses by 2030 to reach more than 40% of its total annual capital expenditure by 2025 and around 50% by 2030.
