Carbon Reduction Projects
3Degrees and its partners support carbon emission reduction projects across the United States and around the world. Please find profiles on a few of these projects below.
A 1.6 MW Caterpillar 3520 generator uses methane gas from the Denton Landfill to generate power while a backup candlestick flare located on the landfill property combusts landfill gas when the generator is at capacity.Read More
The McKinney Landfill captures methane gas that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere from anaerobic decomposition within the landfill.Read More
The Rockingham Landfill Gas Project collects and destroys methane that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.Read More
The South Jordan Landfill Gas Project uses captured methane from the Trans-Jordan Landfill as a fuel source for electricity generation.Read More
Methane from the Greenwood Landfill is used to generate electricity at the nearby Fujifilm facility.Read More
