Daviess County recovers natural gas that is created by the decomposition of organic matter in the Landfill.
Presently, the natural gas is collected and burned off through a flare system. However, the County expects this ‘green energy’ will be utilized in the future on the open market.
The gas will go through a cleaning and compression process before it leaves the Landfill. Watch the video with Judge/Executive Al Mattingly to learn more.
