Located in WaterlooIowa, the Black Hawk County Landfill biogas upgrading facility and wellfield gas collection and control system were financed, designed, constructed, and will be operated by Pine Creek.

Pine Creek is also managing an interim virtual pipeline and a local pipeline interconnect.

The RNG upgrading facility will begin processing gas at approximately 1,200 SCFM, with growth and future plant upgrades expected and with an estimated landfill closure date of 2054.

Pine Creek RNG has standardized on common Pressure Swing Adsorption gas upgrading, flare & thermal oxidizer, and compression technology for all of its project sites.  

Our sites use common controls, are remotely monitored and controlled, report to a central network operations center, and are continually observed for site optimization opportunities.

Pine Creek’s standardization of plant upgrading, combustion & compression hardware, site monitoring & controls, combined with ongoing wellfield monitoring and tuning, significantly lowers the levelized cost ($/MMBtu) of production.
