Natural gas is one of the cleanest and most plentiful sources of energy around. So how do you make it even cleaner? Recycle it, of course. Landfills are the biggest emitters of methane gas in the U.S., giving off close to 25 percent of the country's emissions. Methane is a greenhouse gas and global warming contributor that is released via the natural bacterial breakdown of waste that occurs in landfills. With new technology, it is now possible to gather this methane gas and recycle it for consumer use.
Georgia Natural Gas, one of the state's leading natural gas companies, is the first and only Georgia gas provider to gather recycled natural gas from a landfill. At no additional cost, Georgia Natural Gas is delivering a combination of traditional natural gas along with recycled natural gas straight to customers' homes, with no interruption or change in service. The recycled natural gas is obtained from the Live Oak Landfill in Dekalb County, Georgia. This landfill is capable of producing enough natural gas to fuel approximately 15,000 Georgia homes and has a potential life cycle of about 20 years.
