Tour of Columbus Landfill Gas Power Plant

 

On May 29, 2002, members of Green Energy Ohio toured the landfill methane (biogas) plant at the Phoenix Golf Course just south of Columbus.  This 3 MegaWatts (MW) facility is owned and operated by the Australian company Energy Developments.  The tour was hosted by Mike Heise of American Municipal Power- Ohio (AMP- Ohio).  A number of Ohio municipal utilities get 30 MWs of power from renewable landfill gas plants like this one.  Photos of the tour are below and more information about larger landfill gas plants in Lorain and near Youngstown can be found on the Energy Developments web site.
