Archaea Energy, a subsidiary of bp and the parent company of Conifer Systems, has announced the successful operation of its first renewable natural gas (RNG) plant since its recent acquisition. The plant, located in Medora, Indiana, converts landfill gas into renewable natural gas, reducing emissions, improving air quality, and providing fuel for potential use in homes, businesses and transportation.
Conifer Systems provided a Thermal Recuperative Oxidizer (TRO) solution to treat the emissions from the process. The equipment from Conifer Systems abates the methane that is created during the process of converting landfill emissions to usable renewable natural gas, before it is sent to the pipeline.
The RNG plant in Medora, Indiana can convert 3,200 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) of landfill gas into enough RNG to heat around 13,026 homes annually.
Conifer Systems’ technology has played a crucial role in enabling Archaea Energy to achieve this milestone, which marks a significant step forward in the transition towards a more sustainable energy future. With the demand for clean energy solutions growing rapidly, this collaboration has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about energy production and consumption.
