Garbage to Gas: Seneca Landfill gas system wins environmental award


The Lego-V CNG Facility at Seneca Landfill received a front-page feature for winning the 2019 PA Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence.

The station converts the landfill's methane into compressed natural gas, which is then used instead of diesel to fuel trucks. The CNG station helps close the loop and reduce carbon emissions.

Of the 18 award recipients, Seneca Landfill's CNG station was the only winner from Butler County.

The feature can be read by Butler Eagle subscribers here.
