Honeywell Receives EPA Award For Landfill Gas Plan

Morris Township, N.J.-based Honeywell International has received the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) 2004 Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) Project of the Year Award for an initiative to recover methane-rich landfill gas for use at the Honeywell Nylon plant in Hopewell, Va. Co-recipients of the award include Charlotte-based Enerdyne Power Systems Inc. and Houston-based Waste Management Inc. (WMI), which partnered with Honeywell to build a 23-mile pipeline from the WMI Atlantic Waste landfill in Waverly, Va., to the nylon plant. The pipeline went on-line in January 2004 and has reduced consumption of natural gas fuel by 15 percent.

"The reduction in [carbon dioxide] air emissions over the life of the landfill is equivalent to planting 5,544 square miles of trees and saving 1.2 billion gallons of oil," said Keith Togna, site energy leader for the Honeywell Hopewell plant. LMOP promotes landfill gas as a valuable local energy source that can serve as an alternative to conventional sources of energy.
