Renewable Energy From Methane Wins in California
Republic Services’ Ox Mountain Landfill gas-to-energy project in Half Moon Bay, California was recognized by the U.S. EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) as a Project of the Year. Landfill gas from Ox Mountain supplies enough renewable energy
to customers in Alameda and Palo Alto to reduce emissions equivalent to taking 11,800 cars off the road.
LMOP is a voluntary assistance program designed to help reduce methane emissions from landfills by encouraging the recovery and beneficial use of landfill gas as an energy resource. As an LMOP program participant, Republic Services helps local facilities gain access to a vast network of industry experts and practitioners, as well as to various technical and marketing resources that can help with landfill gas energy project development.
