Dane County, WI
BioCNG’s patent-pending biogas conditioning system economically produces biogas-based fuel to power compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles at the Rodefeld Landfill, in Dane County, WI.
The BioCNG system fuels Dane County parks and public works trucks, with the potential to expand to supply fuel to waste trucks and other County vehicles. It originally built to operate at a capacity of 100 gallons of gasoline equivalent (GGE) per day, but was so successful it was recently upgraded to operate at a capacity of 250 GGE. The landfill’s BioCNG vehicle fueling station operates in conjunction with an existing landfill gas electrical generation system.
The project won the prestigious 2011 Project of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as part of the Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP).
