Fortistar, NRSWA Partner on Methane-Converting RNG Facility

Fortistar, a privately-owned investment firm that acquires companies and projects that address global environmental challenges, and the New River Solid Waste Association (NRSWA) in Raiford, Fla., have partnered to construct a facility that will capture and convert approximately 1,900 dekatherms per day of landfill methane to renewable natural gas (RNG).

“As an investment firm that’s focused on implementing more decarbonization solutions across the country, funding and supporting this renewable energy project in Florida was an easy decision,” says Mark Comora, president of Fortistar. “Creating fuel for transportation is a solution available today to significantly decrease human-related greenhouse gas emissions. NRSWA maintains an excellent reputation in waste management in Florida and we’re looking forward to working with them to capture greenhouse gases, displace diesel trucks and produce cleaner fuel for a more sustainable future.”
