Lansing, Michigan’s first waste-to-energy facility opens

February 27, 2022 |

In Michigan, global sustainable energy producer EDL and key project stakeholders bp, Consumers Energy and Granger Waste Services welcomed the start of operations at the Wood Road Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Facility. The landfill gas to RNG facility is the first of its kind in Lansing, Michigan.

EDL Head of North America Operations Raymond Ivers said, “Our new Wood Road RNG Facility will extract and convert about 19,000 tons of methane from landfill gas per year from Granger Waste Services’ Wood Street Landfill into approximately 870,000 mmBtu (million British thermal unit) of pipeline quality RNG each year.

“Using this RNG instead of natural gas displaces about 29,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2-e) per year that would have otherwise resulted from combusting comparable fossil fuels. That’s equivalent to taking 5,700 cars off the road each year.”

The RNG produced at the Wood Road RNG Facility will be added to Consumers Energy’s existing pipeline network for delivery to end users. A portion will be taken by bp to supply natural gas-powered vehicles across the United States. The RNG will also be delivered for residential, commercial, and industrial use in North America.
