Viridi Partners with Alabama Landfill for RNG Project, as part of the firm’s Local and Municipal Waste to Value Strategy

Viridi is excited to announce a new project, in partnership with Baldwin County, Alabama, that advances our work to build North America’s leading RNG platform. Alongside county leaders, we are embarking on a new landfill renewable natural gas (RNG) project that will transform naturally occurring landfill emissions into clean energy. The facility is expected to produce more than 160,000 MMBtu of RNG annually.

The Baldwin County landfill in Summerdale, Alabama, will serve as the implementation site for this pioneering project. While the county’s landfill is relatively small compared to other projects in our portfolio and development pipeline, Viridi recognizes the immense potential of developing smaller-scale RNG projects. These smaller landfill sites present unique financial and development challenges, but they also represent a significant portion of the remaining landfill
development opportunities in the US and Canada. We are confident that our deep experience in facility design and engineering can make such sites profitable for our investors and productive for our municipal and offtake partners.

BP, a global energy company, will serve as Viridi’s offtake partner, ensuring the successful distribution and utilization of the site’s RNG. The initial deal with Baldwin County was finalized in December 2022, setting the stage for the next phase of development. The target timeline for pipeline injection is Q3 of 2024. Additionally, Quadragen, a renowned RNG upgrading technology provider, has played a pivotal role in bringing this project to life.
