Viridi Launches Landfill Renewable Natural Gas Project in Partnership with Marathon County
Landfill project showcases firm’s unparalleled expertise in end-to-end RNG value creation, while delivering deep environmental benefit to local partners
Viridi RNG is proud to announce the launch of our landfill renewable natural gas project in partnership with Marathon County Government in Ringle, Wisconsin. The development will convert gas from the Marathon County Solid Waste Department’s landfill into clean RNG, equal to more than three million gallons of gasoline annually. Viridi will be transforming a dormant biogas-to-energy project into a state-of-the-art RNG facility.
“As the transition away from fossil fuels accelerates, our Marathon County project showcases how waste-to-energy projects can be a win-win-win. We are reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the county’s landfill, converting that landfill gas into clean RNG, and replacing the need for fossil fuel-derived natural gas in the process,” said Viridi CEO Dan Crouse. “In addition to the environmental impact, we are excited to support the local economy in Marathon as we kick off operations in the community.”
This is among the first of Viridi's landfill projects and will support the firm’s mission of building North America’s leading RNG platform, generating positive environmental benefits for our community and the planet while producing strong economic benefits. Once the construction phase is complete and the facility is operational, Viridi will deliver clean energy to offtake partners, including long-term buyers of RNG and the transportation market.
