The former Hardy Road Landfill in Akron, Ohio is now operational and supplying electricity to an adjacent city-owned wastewater treatment plant as part of a new waste-to-energy project.
Hull & Associates Inc. and the city of Akron entered into an agreement last fall to develop and install a 1.1 MW system designed to capture methane gas from the landfill and convert it to electricity. Closed in 2002, the former Hardy Road Landfill produces approximately 17,500 standard cubic feet per hour of landfill gas which the city previously flared off from the facility. This new project is now converting the gas to electricity.
The project is being managed by Hull Energy LLC, an energy project development and asset management company. Hull, along with IGS Energy, supported the costs for acquiring, installing and operating the waste-to-energy system. Additional financing was provided by FirstMerit Bank.
