The General Motors plant in Shreveport is the fourth GM facility in the country to use landfill gas as energy, recently completing work on a $6 million project. The gas from a nearby landfill is captured and processed by Renovar Shreveport LLC, then transported to GM via a seven-mile pipeline. Landfill gas is one-third of the total energy used at the facility. GM plants in Toledo; Orion, Mich.; and Fort Wayne, Ind. Also use landfill gas; a fifth project is underway at a GM plant in Oklahoma City.
