Ener-G Completes Mexico’s First Landfill Gas-to-Power Project

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Ener-G Holdings Plc, a U.K. renewable-energy developer, completed Mexico’s first plant that captures and converts landfill gases into electricity that’s sold to a Nissan Motor Co. factory.

Ener-G invested 4.4 million pounds ($7.1 million) in the power plant at the San Nicholas landfill in central Mexico, the Manchester-based company said in a statement today.

The company developed the plant with the city of Aquascalientes, which owns the 42-hectare (104 acre) landfill, according to the statement. The plant generates enough electricity for Nissan to make about 37,000 vehicles a year at its nearby factory.

“This ambitious project is converting damaging greenhouse gases into renewable power that is benefiting Mexico’s successful car industry, providing valuable income for the municipality of Aquascalientes, and benefiting the environment,” Hugh Richmond, managing director of Ener-G’s natural power unit, said in the statement.

Nissan makes March, Sentra and Versa cars at the factory.
