Dane County, Wis., Recognized for Landfill CNG Fleet Fuel Project

January 30, 2012

MADISON, WI – Dane County, Wis. received the EPA’s 2011 Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) Project of the Year award for its efforts to fuel County vehicles with compressed natural gas (CNG).

The County received the award for the Rodefeld Landfill BioCNG Vehicle Fuel Project, which is part of the agency's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP).

"Dane County has led the way on a national level for its important work to protect the environment and save taxpayer dollars," said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. "This award is a testament to those efforts. I want to thank the EPA for this honor, and our project partners for making this historic project possible."

The County partnered with private companies, including Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC, ANGI Energy Systems, Unison Solutions LLC, and Madison Area Technical College, for the project. They implemented the BioCNG system for the County, which reduced the cost for fuel to 20 cents per gallon for converted parks and public works trucks, the County stated.

The BioCNG system originally operated at a capacity of 100 gallons of gasoline equivalent (GGE) per day, but the County plans to upgrade the system to produce 250 GGE.

In addition, the landfill's BioCNG vehicle fueling station operates in conjunction with a system the County created to convert landfill gas into electricity. Electricity sales earn taxpayers more than $4.3 million annually, according to the County.
