Renewable Energy -- Landfill Gas
As communities grow, the demand for renewable energy is increasing. Waste Management is helping to fill this need by using waste from homes and businesses across North America to generate electricity. Currently, Waste Management produces enough electricity to power more than 400,000 homes through a source of renewable energy called landfill gas. Today's modern landfill uses advanced engineering to dispose of waste and protect the environment. At more than 80 Waste Management sites, renewable energy plants produce enough electricity using naturally occurring landfill gas. The process begins when waste is collected. One person produces an average of 4.5 pounds of trash every day. While some waste can be recycled, a portion is taken to a landfill for safe disposal. Once inside the landfill, waste decomposes to produce methane. Landfill gas, comprised of about 50% methane is collected by using an underground network of pipes and wells. From this network, the gas is drawn to a renewable energy facility's compression system where the gas is de-watered, pressurized, and filtered to make it clean. When landfill gas first enters the system, it passes through a filter which removes any large pieces of debris and some liquids that may have become mixed with the gas. After initial filtering, it enters a compressor, which raises its pressure until it's high enough for the gas to be used as a fuel. During compression, the temperature of the gas rises and must be cooled down by an after-cooler. Inside the after-cooler, the temperature of the gas is lowered which allows for any remaining moisture to be condensed. The gas is then filtered a second time to remove the condensed moisture. At this stage, the gas is reheated to prevent any further condensation and is ready to be used as a renewable energy fuel. The whole process from start to finish takes seconds. Waste Management renewable energy facilities use either an engine or a turbine to generate power. Both follow the same basic principle to produce electricity. An engine that runs on landfill gas really isn't that different from a car engine. It's equipped with pistons, an air filter, exhaust, radiators, and even batteries. Landfill gas enters the engine and is combusted, causing the pistons to spin a drive-shaft. The drive-shaft is connected to a generator, which converts the power into electricity. The electricity is then sent to state-of-the-art control systems, which ensure that the plant is meeting the needs of the utility. Control systems direct electricity to transformers located on-site which either raise or lower the voltage. Low voltage electricity is used to power equipment within the renewable energy facility. While high voltage electricity is exported to the utility grid to supply energy for communities and businesses. With new plants appearing every year at Waste Management landfills, the amount of renewable energy we provide is positioned to grow for years to come. At Waste Management, our goal is to be the industry leader in finding innovative uses for waste, whether it's through recycling, composting, or creating renewable energy. Waste Management is committed to using trash as a resource to help communities meet their energy needs. To learn more, visit http://www.thinkgreen.com

How It's Made: Trash to Renewable Energy
In one Florida county, trash is brought to two waste-to-energy facilities. At one, cranes feed garbage into boilers where it is burned at over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat of combustion is used to turn water into steam. Then the steam is sent to a turbine generator where it is converted into energy and then sent out as electricity to 70,000 homes and businesses. At the other, the trash is buried. As it starts to naturally decompose, over 300 wells collect the methane gas emitted by the decaying waste. The gas is sent down a pipeline into an on-site plant. There the gas is compressed to 140 PSI and injected into turbines where it is used to generate electricity to power over 5,000 homes. To learn more, visit http://www.wm.com

Waste Management DeKalb: Celebrating 3 Injury-Free Years
In what amounts to an amazing safety accomplishment, Waste Management of DeKalb said its employees have worked for three years without experiencing a single recordable injury. The feat was marked with a safety celebration among drivers, fleet technicians, dispatchers, managers and other employees at the Company's location at 115 Simonds Avenue, DeKalb. In contrast to the business's performance, the waste industry's average total recordable injury rate (TRIR), the standard set by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is 6.4 injuries per 100 employees annually. Company officials estimated that the safety milestone included roughly 16,692,000 waste and recyclable collection stops at customer locations in DeKalb County. Waste Management's DeKalb drivers collect about 6,000 tons of solid waste a month and 900 tons of recyclables. Over the three-year period, that totals nearly 1.3 million tons of trash and more than 32 thousand tons of recyclables. "Safety is a critical part of our culture and it's why our emphasis on safety is so important," said Bill Cole, president of Waste Management Safety Services. "We want our employees to perform their jobs in a way that protects them and gets them home to their families at the end of each day. Safety requires the commitment and effort of each and every employee each day, every day. That is what our people in DeKalb do and it is why they have reached this remarkable milestone." "The safety of our employees and the general public is a primary emphasis for all employees," said Waste Management Manager Jay Ruby. "The drivers attend weekly safety meetings as well as daily safety briefings and are encouraged to identify potential safety issues. Our daily tailgate meetings keep drivers informed, identify problems, and anticipate anything that might present safe driving concerns," he said. Driving safely, following best safety practices and being alert are critical to safety performance, he said. "We want them to identify issues and give us their ideas on safety. It works pretty well," he said. Waste Management's DeKalb County operations include 33 waste collection drivers, three fleet technicians, a dispatcher, a route manager and others who serve approximately 35,000 residents, 1,900 commercial customers and 100 industrial accounts. In addition to DeKalb, the Company serves Fairdale, Genoa, Hampshire, Hinckley, Kingston, Kaneville, Kirkland, Malta, Maple Park, Sycamore and unincorporated Yorkville.

Alternative Fuel for Coal and Petroleum Coke: SpecFuel
Video Transcript: Across North America, businesses and governments are seeking cleaner and economical alternative energy sources. Waste Management sees waste as a resource and is a leader in the development of innovative technologies to extract the value from the waste stream. One of these technologies is Processed Engineered Fuel, or SpecFUEL, which is produced by Waste Management. SpecFUEL is both an environmentally beneficial and economic alternative for coal and petroleum coke. SpecFUEL is an alternative fuel manufactured from high-energy value materials extracted from post-recycled municipal solid waste. Using mechanical sorting equipment, waste is segregated with materials of value, extracted to be recycled. The remaining residual materials are shredded, dried, and densified to create an alternative fuel. The fuel burns cleaner than coal and petroleum coke and can be co-combusted with or replace coal in its entirety. This alternative fuel is manufactured under strict engineering controls and designed to meet strict end-user solid fuel specifications with virtually no process emissions. Compared to refuse-derived fuel, SpecFUEL is a refined, uniform product with low ash and moisture, and a higher and more consistent BTU heating value. It's also easy to transport. Processed engineered fuel is a technology being used in Europe and Waste Management has developed a commercial production facility located at its Covel Gardens Disposal Facility in San Antonio, Texas. The facility has a processing capacity of 300,000 tons of waste per year and can generate 165,000 tons of fuel per year. The fuel generated at this facility is being used by industrial customers in the surrounding area. The economic benefits of SpecFUEL are numerous. SpecFUEL is ideal for any industrial user that is using coal to produce energy or steam, looking to reduce pollutant emissions, and make use of a product that is diverted from landfills. This includes companies in chemical, pulp and paper, textiles, pharmaceutical and metal manufacturing, as well as kiln based cement plants, utilities and district energy facilities. SpecFUEL supplements or replaces coal or petroleum coke to produce steam, electricity, or heat. It's a low fossil carbon, high BTU energy source, may be eligible for Renewable Energy Credits in some states, and can be used in existing energy facilities with little or no modification of solid fuel systems. For industrial users of coal and petroleum coke, SpecFUEL is a low sulfur emission energy source. It can also be part of a closed-loop system, allowing customers to use their own waste as a fuel source. "The system converts up to 55% of the waste materials processed into engineered fuel pellets. Of the remaining residuals, up to 10% could be recycled. Collectively, up to 65% of the waste materials processed could be diverted from landfill disposal." Waste Management is also exploring the diversion of food and yard waste, which could add another 25% of the remaining materials diverted from the waste stream. A number of states recognized waste-based fuel as an alternative energy source and allow electricity producers using it to earn Renewable Energy Credits. "SpecFUEL is an example of our company's commitment to new and innovative Waste Technologies to extract value from the waste stream." Waste Management is your energy partner for a processed, engineered fuel that is both an environmentally beneficial and economic replacement for coal and petroleum coke. Processed Engineered Fuel, or SpecFUEL, produced by Waste Management.

Waste Management Sustainability Consulting
Corporate environmental consulting is actually a business strategy for the future. It helps us really look at the material inputs, the raw materials we use within our organizations and the ways of extending the life of those or reducing the amount that we use. It is very important for companies or entities to always define their metrics upfront to set boundaries so they can aptly communicate to shareholders or the public their sustainable performance, change, or impact that they had on the environment. We have different tools that we can use to help them consolidate their data and then kind of slice it and dice it for different purposes -- perhaps internal communications, external communications, stockholders, and other stakeholders. If you look at the terms "zero" "wasting" and flip it, it's actually "wasting zero" and it's looking at all those materials, things that we would normally throw away and realizing there is no away. It is important to define what waste is, whether it's energy waste, whether it's material waste, or some other form of waste. For example, one of our customers, their definition is 90 percent of diversion from a baseline of 2,007. So, that's an example of how we might apply zero waste. The key to sustainability is that it cannot be a one-time project. It needs to be driven into the DNA of your organization. It's a new business strategy; it's the next way of doing business.
