Developing A Cleaner Environment For Anson County, NC

Developing Greener Environments, Since 1991

Anson Gas Producers, LLC (AGP) is developing and constructing a Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) facility at the Anson Landfill. This project is designed to have a major positive environmental and community impact from the collection and utilization of the gas being generated from the landfill.

The Benefit

The primary constituent in landfill gas is Methane (just like in Natural Gas) and our facility will process that landfill gas into pipeline quality, RNG. Through the collection and processing of the landfill gas, these projects help mitigate odor, which is an issue common to landfills.

The facility will convert collected landfill gas daily to pipeline quality renewable gas that can be used in homes, industry, and transportation.

That is enough gas to heat an average 13,000* homes and reduce landfill gas emission an average 22 tons* of methane annually.

What We Are Seeking

  1. Permission to Survey your property to determine if this is a viable route for the pipeline – Click Here to See a Template
  2. If a route appears to be suitable on your property we will pay for an “Option” and sign an Option Agreement
  3. If we exercise our Option, we will sign a formal Easement Agreement


Annually This Project Would Be Equal To

The carbon sequestered by 237,850 acres of U.S. forests in 1 year

CO2 emissions from 586,328 barrels of oil consumed

CO2 emissions from 28,369,625 gallons of gasoline consumed

These are minimum projections based on 2,000 standard cubic feet per minute

Types Of Projects

As trash decomposes it generates gas. Landfill Gas consists of Methane, CO2, Oxygen, and other trace gases. Methane is the primary constituent and can be utilized just like Natural Gas!

There are four primary types of projects:

  • Direct Use: Gas is piped directly to a customer – typically for a boiler, incinerator, or other Natural Gas Application. Requires Minimal Treatment. Also known as Medium-Btu.
  • Power: Gas is utilized in a internal combustion engine or turbine to create electricity, which is then sold back to the local utility, grid, or a customer connected to the power grid.
  • Renewable Natural Gas (RNG): Gas is extensively treated and injected back into the Natural Gas Pipeline Utility. Also know as High-Btu.
  • Vehicle Fuel: Gas is compressed or liquified to use in vehicle applications

All of these projects meet Renewable Standards, generate qualified credits, and with environmental sustainability

Economic Impact

Construction will begin in 2022 and end in 2023. Up to 100 workers per day will be employed during construction and support 150 new jobs in the area during construction. Normal operations will employ 4 highly skilled operators and support 6 new permanent jobs in the area.

The Development Team

The project will be performed by business units all residing under the Landfill Group LLC, a biogas-focused renewable energy company based in Charlotte, North Carolina.  It was founded in 1991 has since been involved in more than 60 LFGTE projects.
