PROJECT DETAILS

WOOD ROAD GENERATING STATION - LANDFILL GAS RECOVERY

The Wood Road Generating Station is located at the Wood Road Landfill in Dewitt Township and Lansing Township, at 16980 Wood Street. The landfill accepts municipal solid waste, consisting mostly of residential and commercial waste materials, and has been open since 1970. Granger Waste Management Company owns the landfill and the generating station is owned and operated by Granger Electric Company


ELECTRICAL POWER IS GENERATED VIA COMBUSTION IN A CATERPILLAR 3520 AND TWO GE / JENBACHER 616 GAS ENGINE GENERATOR SETS.

POWER GENERATION / QUALITY CONTROL:

The landfill gas collection system includes a series of gas wells, collection piping and headers, condensate drains, an open flare, and a gas-to-energy plant. Four Caterpillar 3516 engine-generator sets combust the gas and generate electricity. Granger installed these engines prior to January 1, 1999. The landfill gas collection system is periodically expanded as needed due to gas generation at the landfill and this portion of the landfill gas collection system is the portion eligible for credits. The electricity production is controlled and monitored using a Synchropower engine power control system. Operators monitor the system, record information daily, and respond to any alarms. A flare is used to combust any gas collected that cannot be used in the engines but is rarely used. The flare is metered and monitored but Granger Electric Company is not requesting credits associated with the flared landfill gas.


THE CALIFORNIA CLIMATE ACTION REGISTRY IS A PROGRAM OF THE CLIMATE ACTION RESERVE COMMITTED TO SOLVING CLIMATE CHANGE THROUGH EMISSIONS ACCOUNTING AND REDUCTION. IT WAS CREATED BY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN 2001 TO PROMOTE AND PROTECT BUSINESSES’ EARLY ACTIONS TO MANAGE AND REDUCE THEIR GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) EMISSIONS.

Carbon offsetting is the practice of incentivising others to make a carbon saving equivalent to some of the carbon you create. These savings can be made via cleaner energy sources like solar and wind, by planting trees, by switching to cleaner alternative fuels, and by protecting and maintaining the world’s rainforests. The catalyst driving these savings is the carbon credit market. * GHG is measured in tonnes of CO2e (Carbon Dioxide or Equivalent) * 1 Tonne of CO2 = 1 Carbon Credit * The Kyoto Protocol is an agreement overseen by The United Nations which commits industrialized nations including Europe to reduce their GHG (Green House Gases) emissions.
