Atlanta-based Boral Bricks Inc. plans to use landfill methane to fire about a third of its kilns. The Oklahoma Environmental Management Authority operates the landfill in Union City (southwest of Oklahoma City) that will provide the methane. The project is expected to cost about $2 million to setup. A similar project was announced last month where Jenkins Brick Company agreed to build a $56 million manufacturing plant in Moody, Ala. specifically to use methane produced by Veolia Environmental Services' Star Ridge landfill there.
