* University of New Hampshire to Power Campus with Landfill Gas
The University of New Hampshire, in cooperation with Waste Management of New Hampshire, Inc., has launched EcoLine, a landfill gas project that will pipe enriched and purified gas from Waste Management's landfill in Rochester to the Durham campus. UNH is the first university in the nation to undertake a project of this magnitude.
The renewable, carbon-neutral landfill gas, from Waste Management's Turnkey Recycling and Environmental Enterprise (TREE) facility in Rochester, N.H., will replace commercial natural gas as the primary fuel in UNH's cogeneration plant, enabling UNH to receive 80-85 percent of its energy from a renewable source.
