Piped landfill gas to raise steam at US industrial site

Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Three Rivers Solid Waste Authority and Siemens Building Technologies have launched a major landfill-gas-to-energy project that will capture methane gas naturally generated within the Three Rivers Regional Landfill at Jackson and transport it to Kimberly-Clark’s manufacturing facility at Beech Island. Here, it will be used to produce steam for the production of well known brands such as Kleenex facial tissue and Scott bathroom tissue.

The outlook for CHP investment opportunities in many of the world’s major markets is highly mixed, with some markets looking especially promising in the short-term (including Belgium and Italy), while others (including Germany, India and China), face a much more uncertain policy and market environment which is, for now, constraining investment.
