Toyota converting biogas to power for Georgetown plant

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, with help from Waste Services of the Bluegrass, is converting methane from a local landfill into renewable electricity to power Toyota’s Georgetown assembly plant.

Landfill gas is comprised of both methane and carbon dioxide, in addition to varying amounts of other contaminants. With the increasing number of landfills in the United States, the effect of landfill gas on the environment can be detrimental.

Scheduled for completion in early 2015, the project will not only provide enough power to produce 10,000 vehicles each year, but it will also lead to improved air-quality, reducing local air pollution as much as 90%.
