Landfills play a critical role in waste management, but as waste decomposes, it releases methane – a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.

What if there was a way to minimize methane from seeping into the atmosphere? What if there was a way to put it to good use?

Those are the questions our engineers have been asking.

In 2008, we implemented a renewable biomass energy project at our largest manufacturing site in the world, Beech Island Mill in South Carolina to reclaim landfill gas to power operations.
