Presentation Overview:

An increasing number of landfills across the country are being put to use as alternative energy power sources. Currently, EPA tracks over 15 National Priorities List (NPL) Superfund sites supporting methane gas-to-energy projects. Methane energy released from these landfills is captured to produce power for local utilities and nearby facilities. The Superfund Redevelopment Initiative's May webinar will explore reusing Superfund sites for this innovative purpose by inviting stakeholders involved in a variety of methane gas-to-energy projects to share their perspectives. Representatives from Waste Management's renewable energy group will present on their Superfund landfill projects, and EPA staff will discuss the Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation's (OSRTI) project to implement cost-effective gas-to-energy projects at approximately 8 NPL landfills. Site stakeholders from Superfund projects currently underway will also share key lessons, challenges and impacts from projects at their sites.
