Waste Management Begins Production at its Eagle Valley Green Energy Plant
Date:9/22/2011

ORION, Mich., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Waste Management announced today that the company has completed construction of its new gas-to-energy facility at Eagle Valley Recycling and Disposal Facility in Orion, Michigan. With the state-of-the-art facility now fully operational, green energy is helping power more homes across southeast Michigan through an agreement between Waste Management and DTE Energy.

"Creating this facility ensures the waste we generate will be converted into a beneficial use," said Chuck Cassie, Senior District Manager of Eagle Valley Recycling and Disposal Facility, which is owned by Waste Management of Michigan. "In addition to already providing green energy to General Motors Lake Orion's Manufacturing facility, we have further invested in landfill gas-to-energy by constructing this new Renewable Energy Plant at Eagle Valley. Waste Management will continue to provide clean and renewable 'green' energy in our community of Orion."

As waste naturally decomposes, it produces landfill gas, which can be captured and used as a green energy source and alternative to fossil fuels. At Eagle Valley, up to 1,200 cubic feet per minute of landfill gas is being channeled into two (2) 20 cylinder, 3520 Caterpillar engines to produce electricity. The electricity generated at Eagle Valley goes into DTE Energy's electric grid.

The newly completed energy plant is designed to generate 3.2 megawatts of electricity, enough to power the equivalent of 2,700 Michigan homes.

"As Michigan and the rest of the nation look to invest in renewable energy, landfill gas is becoming more attractive because it is reliable," Cassie said. "It's important for residents to understand that landfill gas at Eagle Valley means reliable green energy production for the future."

In addition to landfill gas-to-energy operations, Waste Management's landfills also supply power to local businesses, including the General Motors assem
