Landfill gas, a natural byproduct of the decomposition process of waste, will be collected at the Twin Chimneys Landfill and converted into RNG. The processed landfill gas will then be injected into the local natural gas system owned and operated by the Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works.

The project is expected to achieve commercial operations by the fourth quarter in 2022.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the environmental benefits associated with this project are equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by more than 28 million gallons of gasoline, commensurate to approximately 95,000 cars each year. The partnership between TCPP and Greenwood CPW allows for the landfill gas to be converted from an environmental hazard into a community resource.

Once operational, TCPP is expected to initially produce approximately 1,200 MMBTU of RNG per day, and will grow over time to produce approximately 3,000 MMBTU per day. All development, construction and operations activities will be managed internally by other Landfill Group companies.

“We are extremely excited about this project and its potential as a source of clean, renewable energy” said Mike Fenton, Director of Project Delivery for the Landfill Group. “We have a great team that will be able to build a system that can scale and provide a level of reliability unmatched in the industry”.

The TCPP project also includes an investment of more than a million dollars in 2021 alone to improve existing landfill gas control and collection infrastructure. It will be Enerdyne’s second renewable energy project in Greenville County and follows the success of the Enoree Landfill project, which has been operating since 2008. That project, which won the EPA's 2008 Power Project of the Year award, utilises landfill gas to fuel a generator, creating renewable electricity that serves customers of the local electric utility.

The project has the support of numerous officials and partners from Greenville County, Greenwood CPW, City of Greenville and US Gain.
