DTE Biomass Energy today announced it has acquired two landfill gas-to-energy projects in Texas, purchasing both the operating Fort Bend Power Producers, LLC facility just outside of Rosenberg and the Seabreeze landfill gas development project in Angleton.
Construction of the Seabreeze plant is expected to commence next month.
Fort Bend and Seabreeze bring the number of landfill gas-to-energy projects DTE operates in Texas to three and gives DTE five facilities enterprise-wide which convert landfill gas to pipeline-quality, "renewable natural gas (RNG)."
Nationwide, DTE's landfill gas portfolio includes:
• 13 projects generating renewable electricity
• 3 creating natural gas for industrial applications
• 5 producing RNG for vehicle use and other gas services
