First WAGABOX® Landfill Gasoline to RNG Venture within the U.S. Confirmed

On December 30, 2021, Waga Power, a European knowledgeable within the manufacturing of Renewable Pure Gasoline (RNG) from landfill fuel, signed a contract with Steuben County, New York for the event of an RNG challenge at a municipal strong waste landfill situated within the city of Tub. Waga Power will construct a landfill fuel upgrading unit utilizing its patented WAGABOX® expertise. As soon as accomplished, the unit will produce grid compliant RNG (also referred to as biomethane) from the methane generated by the decomposition of the waste within the landfill.

The WAGABOX® unit shall be commissioned by March 2023. It should purify 1,000 commonplace cubic toes per minute (1,600 cubic meters per hour) of uncooked landfill fuel to ship 207,000 mmBtu (60 GWh) of RNG. The ability will produce RNG that can be utilized for residential consumption or as a transportation gasoline, equal to supplying round 4,000 houses with clear, native, and renewable power, saving an estimated 13,500 tons of carbon dioxide per yr.

Waga Power will fund, construct, function and keep the WAGABOX® unit below a 20-year landfill fuel provide contract with Steuben County. The whole facility shall be in-built North America, except for one of many elements of the cryogenic module that shall be imported from France. Waga Power will generate revenues by promoting RNG to a non-public offtaker via a purchase order settlement just like the PPAs (energy buy agreements) generally used for renewable electrical energy initiatives. The income generated by the challenge shall be shared with Steuben County.

Steuben County is residence to roughly 94,000 residents, and its strong waste landfill in Tub is allowed to get rid of 150,000 tons of waste per yr. In July 2020 the County issued a aggressive RFP (request for proposals) for a landfill fuel utilization challenge to gather and improve the fuel which is presently flared.
