Waste Management of Indiana LLC, the Wabash Valley Power Association and the Hendricks Power Cooperative have dedicated a renewable energy generation facility in Indiana that uses gas from landfill waste to generate electricity.

The 3.2 MW Twin Bridges IV project, located at the Twin Bridges Recycling and Disposal Facility in Danville, is the fourth landfill gas-to-energy plant at the facility. According to Waste Management, the site now generates the equivalent amount of electricity to power approximately 14,000 homes.

Twin Bridges IV represents Wabash Valley Power's 14th landfill gas-to-energy facility, each of which is located throughout the northern half of Indiana on landfills owned by Waste Management. Through an exclusive partnership, Wabash Valley Power, a generation and transmission cooperative, owns the power plants, while Waste Management of Indiana supplies the landfill gas and serves as the plant operator.

Fuel for the Twin Bridges landfill gas-to-energy facility is derived from wastes buried in the landfill, which generate methane gas. A network of recovery wells and pipes controls and collects the methane and conveys it to an on-site power plant. There the gas is condensed, purified and used as fuel to drive engines that, in turn, drive electricity generators.
