New methane plant at Lawrence landfill turns trash into fuel
A new $20 million methane plant at a landfill in Lawrence, Kansas, is turning trash into an energy source.
 
           
  The renewable energy facility is set to generate 404.7 million cubic feet of renewable natural gas per year, reducing carbon emissions equal to that of 19.8 million gallons of gasoline consumed.     The California state legislature passed a landmark series of bills Friday that provides $895 million towards programs that will reduce air pollution from mobile sources which are responsible for 40 percent of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.     Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) announced the company achieved a milestone in its methane capture initiative, passing the one million cubic foot mark.
