Coca-Cola has been awarded a Green Power Leadership Award, under the on-sit power generation category.

The project involved was 6.5 MW biogas combined heat and power system in Atlanta, US.

The U.S. EPA has presented its 12th annual Green Power Leadership Awards to 24 Green Power Partners.

The plant is the fifth-largest system of its kind in the U.S and is fueled by landfill gas, supplying electricity, steam and chilled water to Coca-Cola’s Atlanta Beverage Plant.

Information provided by the EPA notes that the system includes a vacuum-collection system that captures methane from the Hickory Ridge landfill. The CHP plant generates approximately 48 million kWh of electricity annually.
