An important milestone in the field of renewable energy is marked with the official opening of the Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) plant of Archaea Energy, a division of bp, located in Medora, Indiana. This facility is not limited to being just one more among RNG plants; rather, it represents an innovation in terms of design and efficiency, demonstrating that the conversion of waste into energy is a concrete reality and beneficial for both the environment and communities.

About the gas plant

Located adjacent to the Rumpke Waste and Recycling landfill, this facility uses a revolutionary design called Archaea Modular Design (AMD) to transform gas generated from the decomposition of waste at the landfill into electricity, heat or renewable natural gas. This procedure not only contributes to improving air quality and reducing odors, but also represents a more sustainable approach compared to conventional fossil fuel-based energy generation.

The plant in Medora has the capacity to process 90 m 3 of landfill-generated gas per minute, which is equivalent to producing enough gas to heat approximately 13,026 homes for one year.

Innovative technology

Unlike conventional Renewable Natural Gas facilities that are custom built, Archaea Modular Design (AMD) allows for the construction of plants using interchangeable modules, significantly simplifying and speeding up the construction process compared to previous industry standards. .

Jeff Rumpke, division president of Rumpke Waste & Recycling, highlighted his company’s commitment to technology that reduces its environmental footprint and emphasized how Archaea Energy’s RNG plant at its location will further contribute to the decrease in emissions and It will ensure that waste is not only managed properly, but also used productively.
