THROOP — What would you say about a facility that not only produces renewable natural gas but also reduces the amount gas emissions created by landfills that end up in the air? That’s what one energy company is proposing to do in a community in Lackawanna County.
A wooded area that sits off Marshwood Road beyond a UGI Station in Throop could be the site of a renewable natural gas production facility.
Randy Holmes is the CEO of Meadowbrook Energy. He’s looking at a 20-acre plot of land to build that 6-acre plant.
He says the facility would make that renewable natural gas by using the biogas emissions generated at landfills in Lackawanna County.
