Pine Tree Landfill

Printer friendlyPrinter friendly

Casella Waste Systems, Inc.’s Pine Tree Landfill in Hampden, Maine is the site of the first landfill gas-to-energy facility in the state. 

We worked with Casella Waste Systems personnel to prepare a proforma for the project, based in part on the gas production potential of the site.  Through air licensing, best available control technology (BACT) analyses, and refined air dispersion modeling, we demonstrated compliance with air quality standards and permits were issued for the project.  The successful project is producing 3 Megawatts of energy from landfill gas.
