Archaea Energy, a BP company, has started commercial operations at its Archaea Modular Design renewable natural gas (RNG) plant in Medora, Indiana. Located next to a landfill owned by Rumpke Waste and Recycling, this is the first plant to come online since BP’s acquisition of Archaea Energy in December 2022.

The Medora plant can process 3200 scf (90.6 m3) of landfill gas per minute into RNG, enough gas to heat around 13,026 homes annually. Using the Archaea Modular Design, the Medora plant captures gas from Rumpke’s landfill and converts it to electricity, heat, or RNG.

Medora is the first of 40 new plants Archaea Energy is planning to bring online in the next two years.
