Running California’s Garbage Trucks on Garbage
California’s largest landfill, located in Altamont, is using the gas given off by the garbage to create LNG. BOC’s parent company, Linde in North America has worked with Waste Management to design and built the plant to create the LNG, which is used to fuel the garbage trucks. The plant is the world’s largest landfill gas to LNG plant and it reduces California’s greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30,000 tons annually.
UK Supermarket delivery fleet to "Running on Rubbish"
UK supermarket giant, Sainsbury has been successfully running a number of their delivery trucks on Liquid Bio Methane (LBM) since 2008. LBM can be directly substituted for LNG in due-fuel heavy duty vehicles. UK company, Gasrec, sources the LBM from Albury landfill in Surrey.
Closer to home, a number of projects are being developed by BOC in Australia:
Australia’s first Micro LNG Plant
Work has already commenced on a Micro LNG plant in Tasmania, due for completion in mid 2010. This plant will fuel 120 heavy duty transport trucks across a network of 6 LNG refuelling stations.
Queensland's Coal Seam Gas
A 15 year, $100 million supply agreement with QGC, will provide coal seam gas to be processed by BOC into LNG. Construction is expected to start early 2011 on a site next to QGC’s Condamine Power Station near Miles in the Surat basin. A number of refuelling stations will be serviced by this plant, commencing the planned network along the east coast of Australia.
