DTE Biomass Energy completes LFG project in North Carolina

9.6 MW landfill gas-to-energy plant has the capacity to power more than 6,000 homes.

DTE Biomass Energy recently tarted operating the facility at the landfill, which is owned and operated by Republic Services of North Carolina. Landfill gas at the site is used to generate renewable energy which is subsequently sold to Duke Energy Progress. The Uwharrie facility will more than double DTE Biomass' generation capacity in North Carolina, where it already operates six renewable energy projects.

Representatives from DTE Biomass Energy, Republic Services and Duke Energy Progress gathered to recognize their partnership that has resulted in enough renewable energy to power more than 6,000 North Carolina homes. The plant includes six Caterpillar engine generators and a staff of three.
"We have built strong relationships with several North Carolina-based contractors, Montgomery County, Republic Services and Duke Energy Progress," said Mark Cousino, DTE Biomass Energy president. "This collaboration was instrumental in the successful launch of the project and provides a solid foundation for continued growth of these partnerships moving forward."
