Anheuser-Busch Fuels Texan Brewery with Landfill Biogas

Anheuser-Busch Fuels Texan Brewery with Landfill Biogas
Ebba Akerman

In a joint project with Republic Services and Ameresco Services, The Anheuser-Busch brewery  in Houston will have its energy demand supplied by more than 55% from biogas. Connected by pipelines with the Macarty Road Landfill, the gas is carried to the facilities to generate steam energy for the brewery’s power plant.

Landfill biogas consists of approx. 50 percent methane,  a green house gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide, and is created when organic material decomposes in landfills. It can be converted into alternative fuels, heat, steam or used to generate electricity.

The benefit of this clean energy project is equivalent to planting more than 121,050 acres of pine or fir trees or taking 97,550 motor vehicles off the road.
