Waga Energy, a global expert in the production of RNG from landfills, has signed a commercial agreement with the waste commission of Scott County, an intergovernmental solid waste management agency in Iowa, and Linwood Mining and Minerals Corp., a leader in the limestone industry in the Midwest, to produce RNG at the Scott Area landfill in Davenport, Iowa.
As part of this agreement, Waga Energy will fund construction of an RNG facility to upgrade landfill gas into pipeline-quality RNG. Waga Energy will operate the plant for a 20-year initial term, sharing revenue with the commission and Linwood. Waga Energy will also support the commission’s ongoing wellfield operations to optimize methane capture and maximize renewable energy production.
Once commercial operations are achieved in 2025, the facility will be able to deliver more than 200,000 MMBtu of RNG per year (60 GWh). Production will be injected directly into the nearby gas pipeline through a one-mile connection,
