Being a steward of our Blue Planet requires responsible landfill management. To us, that involves more than capturing landfill gas — a byproduct of waste decomposition in landfills. It means prioritizing renewable energy opportunities whenever possible, from harnessing landfill gas at active landfills to capturing the power of the sun, and converting previously unused resources into power for homes, businesses, critical infrastructure, and our collection vehicles.

UK Energy Sector Transformation Marks Historic Milestones

Article

In the chronicles of Great Britain’s energy industry, 2017 will go down as a significant year. At a time already characterized by change and uncertainty, two events stand out. One signals a break with the past; the other suggests the shape of things to come.

In April, for the first time ever, Britain’s National Grid ran for 24 hours without any coal-generated power. In September, for the first time ever, the cost of wind power in Britain fell below that of nuclear power.

Balancing Modern Power: The Convergence of Natural Gas and the Electric Market

Article

One might think the proliferation of renewables would spell the demise of natural gas, but market leaders know that gas-fired generation will continue to play an important role even as an influx of renewable energy reshapes the American power landscape.

Critical Considerations for Global Gas-To-Power Deployment Success

Article

After the Fukushima disaster in 2011 and the subsequent sunsetting of many of Japan’s nuclear facilities, the Japanese economy’s reliance on fossil fuels intensified and altered the country’s energy mix. In the following years, major suppliers profited from rising demand in Asian markets and promoted the benefits of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Its ability to be transported easily with minimal infrastructure requirements, as well as drastically lower prices compared to domestic or stranded gas prices, led to a tremendous buildup of liquefaction capacity globally.

Natural Gas Poised to Unlock Latin America Power Prospects

Article

Latin America’s rising demand for natural gas presents broad opportunities across the industry. While these opportunities may be most acutely present in Mexico — where a steadily growing economy is catalyzing soaring natural gas imports from the United States — conditions across the region reflect positive trends for U.S. producers and midstream players. Emerging markets are eager to tap U.S. supplies and seize on natural gas’s potential as a low cost, reliable and cleaner power generation source.
