Outagamie Renewable Natural Gas Facility

Appleton, WI

Supporting the goal of a sustainable future, ICT is committed to designing renewable energy projects and finding innovative solutions for our clients.

The Outagamie County Recycling and Solid Waste department landfill encompasses an area of 450 acres and provides services to residents of Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties.  Landfill Gas, a natural byproduct of landfill decomposition, is 28 times more potent than CO2 at increasing heat trapped in the atmosphere.  As the third largest source of methane emissions in the United States, landfills such as this represent an opportunity to capture methane and prevent it from entering the atmosphere, while generating a high-quality renewable source of fuel. 

ICT served as the Prime Engineer providing design services supporting Terreva Renewables and the County for this renewable natural gas facility.  The stand-alone facility takes the raw methane from the landfill and houses the equipment necessary to convert it to pipeline quality natural gas.  By expanding the use of natural gas in the area to large commercial vehicles, this facility is anticipated to offset gasoline consumption by 4 million gallons, the equivalent to taking 7700 cars off the road.

Through this partnership, ICT has supported Terreva Renewables at four other similar facilities in the past five years.  As of March of 2023, the EPA estimates that there are 466 good candidates for landfill natural gas projects in the United States.  At ICT, we see this as a distinct and ongoing opportunity to continue to support our partners and future projects in renewable natural gas.
