Plans unveiled for $100 million biogas processing facility

THROOP, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Plans were unveiled Wednesday for another possible industrial project in Lackawanna County’s Mid Valley.

A company called Meadowbrook Energy LLC is looking to build a $100 million facility that would convert biogas from the Keystone Sanitary Landfill into renewable natural gas.

Location for the project is everything.

If approved, the facility would be built on a 20-acre piece of land on Marshwood Road in Throop.

Right now, the land is empty but it could soon turn into one of the largest biogas processing facilities in the country.
