Waste Management to invest $825M in RNG

May 1, 2022 |

In Texas, Waste Management Inc., the biggest landfill operator in North America, is investing $825 million over the next four years to expand its renewable natural gas infrastructure and turn methane from garbage dumps into biomethane. WM said the funds will bring 17 new projects online across the U.S. and Canada by 2026, adding to the 16 it currently runs.

WM’s network of RNG facilities, landfill gas-to-electricity plants, and other beneficial use projects are estimated to generate enough renewable energy to supply the equivalent of 1 million homes and help WM fuel its entire natural gas fleet with RNG by 2026.

WM expects RNG plants in Oklahoma City, Okla., and Springdale, Ark., to come online in 2022. Landfill gas is captured and turned into renewable electricity and fuel at 144 of the landfills WM owns or operates.
