Florida’s first landfill gas to RNG facility successfully ramped up

January 5, 2023 |

In Florida, OPAL Fuels announced Florida’s first landfill gas to RNG facility at the New River Solid Waste Association (NRSWA) municipal solid waste landfill has successfully completed its ramp-up period.

Located in Raiford, Florida, the facility captures naturally occurring biogas from the decomposition of organic material at the landfill and refines it into RNG, a usable low-carbon fuel. RNG is a right now solution to the right now problem of climate change and is one of the most attractive sources of renewable energy – capturing extremely damaging greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and using it to replace fossil fuels, such as diesel.

The RNG will be used to feed OPAL Fuels transportation customers at the company’s fueling stations via the Peoples Gas distribution system. Peoples Gas System is Florida’s largest natural gas distribution utility, serving more than 445,000 homes and businesses across the state.
