The University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham, NH, has launched a landfill gas project that pipes enriched and purified gas from a landfill in Rochester to the Durham campus. The renewable, carbon-neutral landfill gas from Waste Management's Turnkey Recycling and Environmental Enterprise facility in Rochester will replace commercial natural gas as the primary fuel for UNH's cogeneration plant.
