Kinetrex Energy and Wabash Valley Power Alliance start construction on RNG projects in Indiana

September 30, 2021 |

In Texas, Kinetrex Energy, a Kinder Morgan, Inc. company, and Wabash Valley Power Alliance (WVPA) announced they have started construction activities for three previously announced renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities in Indiana. The three sites are located at the Twin Bridges Landfill in Danville, the Prairie View Landfill in Wyatt and the Liberty Landfill in Monticello. Upon completion, they are expected to produce a total of 3.5 billion cubic feet of RNG each year. Commercial operations are expected to begin in the fall of 2022, pending required permits and certifications.

Kinetrex Energy expects to invest $146 million to construct the RNG facilities to process gas purchased from WVPA. Waste Management, which owns the landfills, will operate the new RNG facilities. WVPA will continue to have generation facilities at the sites that will remain in operation. The new RNG facilities are designed to capture methane produced from landfills and convert that methane into pipeline-quality natural gas. This capture process reduces or eliminates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the landfill and provides low-cost, efficient renewable energy. The RNG generated from the plants will be sold pursuant to long-term contracts to Kinetrex Energy’s compressed renewable natural gas (CRNG) and liquefied renewable natural gas (LRNG) vehicle transportation customers located throughout the eastern half of the United States.
