Partner Profile
BMW Manufacturing earned a 2003 Green Power Leadership Award for using landfill gas to generate a portion of the power needed to operate its Spartanburg, South Carolina manufacturing facility. Landfill gas is piped from a landfill to the manufacturing facility to power its two gas turbines, which generate approximately 11 MW of electricity for the factory, and also to supply hot water for cooling, heating, and hot water needs. BMW credits EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program for educating the company on the advantages of landfill gas in terms of environmental impact and lower energy costs.
