NGA Interconnect Guide Facilitates Getting to Yes with Pipeline Interconnects
The recently released revision of the NGA Interconnect Guide for Emerging Fuels into Energy Delivery Networks has stimulated a "good science / common sense" approach to successful RNG pipeline interconnects across the country. A great example of industry working together with a common purpose and goal, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while capturing a valuable energy resource, is the work of NGA+ Member, LandfillGroup LLC.
The Twin Chimney Power Producers Project is the first RNG recovery facility in South Carolina located at the Twin Chimneys Landfill. This project is de- signed to have a major positive environmental and community impact from the collection and utilization of the gas being generated from the landfill. The facility will convert collected landfill gas daily to pipeline quality renewable gas that can be used to heat an average 5,916 homes and reduce landfill gas emission an average 8,337 tons of methane annually.
