Fortistar, a privately-owned investment firm that addresses global environmental challenges, the New River Solid Waste Association in Raiford, Florida, announced the construction of a Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) facility that will capture and convert landfill methane to RNG. The decarbonization solution significantly decreases human-related greenhouse gas emissions from landfills and produces cleaner fuel for a more sustainable future. At full output, the New River facility engineered and built by SCS Energy, a specialty practice of SCS Engineers, will extract 2,500 standard cubic feet per minute of landfill gas and produce 5.1 million gas gallon equivalents (GGE) of RNG per year. The overall project reduces emissions by 35,000 tons of CO2e annually and creates 35 to 40 construction jobs.
