Upstate New York Solid Waste

Description: Capture the methane emissions from a regional landfill facility serving four counties (Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, and Hamilton) in upstate New York. This project breaks down methane, which is 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. The heat released in this methane destruction process provides alternative energy to several counties and warms a nearby greenhouse.
