Ohio landfill to expand gas production

Montauk Renewables says it can increase gas output at the Amsterdam, Ohio, site by 40 percent.

Pittsburgh-based Montauk Renewables Inc. has announced plans to construct a second what it calls renewable natural gas (RNG) processing facility at its Apex landfill gas project in Amsterdam, Ohio.

The planned project at the landfill, operated by New Jersey-based Interstate Waste Services, is being driven by projections in biogas feedstock availability from the host landfill over the next 12 to 18 months, Montauk says.

The landfill gas technology firm is targeting an approximate 40 percent increase in RNG processing capacity with the addition of the second facility. It is expected to add up to 2,100 metric million British thermal units (MMBtu) per day of production capacity and expand the infrastructure for the conversion of landfill gas to RNG.

The project is expected to be completed in 2024, based on currently forecasted biogas feedstock volumes that are anticipated to be available from the host landfill at the time of commissioning, Montauk says.

Montauk is excited to announce this significant expansion to our current production capacity at the Apex Amsterdam, Ohio site,” Montauk CEO Sean McClain says. “A critical component to our development strategy includes the ability to add capacity to complement the growth endeavors of our host business partners.”

The company currently expects the capital investment to range between $25 million and $30 million in total project costs during the next 12 to 18 months, starting in the fourth quarter.
