The largest renewable natural gas (RNG) project in Indiana is underway by Indianapolis-based Kinetrex Energy at the South Side Landfill. When complete, the facility will turn methane produced by the landfill into about 8 million gallons of RNG each year in a process they say will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create a renewable energy resource and lower fuel costs. Kinetrex will take the cleaned-up gas and place it in the Citizens Gas distribution system, liquefy it and use it for long-haul trucking. It is estimated the facility will reduce methane emissions by about 17,000 tons per year and carbon dioxide emissions by about 41,000 tons per year, or the equivalent of removing up to 19,000 passenger cars from the road each year.
