Project to Turn Trash into Energy Gets Test Run in Butte County

A project to turn landfill gas into energy in Butte County gets a test run this week. Bill Mannel with Butte County administration says a contractor will create electricity from the methane gas produced from decomposing trash. The contractor is expected to test fire their engine today. Mannel says the county sells the landfill gas to the contractor, which makes the electricity and sells it to municipal customers.
