U.S. landfills release more than 100 million metric tons of CO2e every year.
In a landfill, naturally-occurring anaerobic digestion of organic matter produces biogas over a 30-50 year time frame. About half of this gas is methane, which if not collected escapes into the atmosphere where it is 25 times more destructive than CO2 as a greenhouse gas.
Carbon emissions create global climate problems.
Over the past 171 years, human activities have raised atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by 48% above pre-industrial levels found in 1850.
The Solution is Renewable Natural Gas
Archaea Energy captures recurring emissions from waste and converts them into a low carbon fuel source to create a circular, sustainable economy. RNG is a reliable, non-intermittent, renewable energy source, that enables our partners to decarbonize.
