UNH becomes first university in nation to use landfill gas as primary energy source
Date:9/13/2007

DURHAM, N.H. The University of New Hampshire, in cooperation with Waste Management of New Hampshire, Inc., has launched EcoLine, a landfill gas project that will pipe enriched and purified gas from Waste Managements landfill in Rochester to the Durham campus, UNH President Mark Huddleston announced. UNH is the first university in the nation to undertake a landfill gas initiative of this magnitude.

The renewable, carbon-neutral landfill gas, from Waste Managements Turnkey Recycling and Environmental Enterprise (TREE) facility in Rochester, N.H., will replace commercial natural gas as the primary fuel in UNHs cogeneration plant, enabling UNH to receive 80 to 85 percent of its energy from a renewable source.

By reducing the universitys dependence on fossil fuels and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, EcoLine is an environmentally and fiscally responsible initiative, said Huddleston. UNH is proud to lead the nation and our peer institutions in this landmark step toward sustainability.

Construction began in August on a landfill gas processing plant in Rochester which will purify the gas, and on a 12.7-mile underground pipeline which will transport the gas from the plant to the universitys Durham campus. UNH is expected to fuel its cogeneration plant with landfill gas by the fall of 2008. Estimated cost of the project, including the construction of a second generator at UNH, is $45 million.

Waste Management is very pleased to work with UNH on this significant and innovative landfill gas-to-energy initiative, said Alan L. Davis, district manager of TREE for Waste Management. This project will add to the growing roster of landfill gas-to-energy projects operated by Waste Management across the country, and it will help us responsibly allocate the companys resources while providing renewable power to the communities we serve.

As the nations largest owner and operator of landfills, Waste Management recently announced
