Specialty chemical company Croda Inc. has begun construction of a $6 million combined heat and power plant that will use gas from Delaware's Cherry Island landfill to meet 55 percent of the energy needs at its nearby Atlas Point chemical plant. Croda received a $500,000 grant from the Delaware Energy Efficiency Investment Fund for the project. Cummins Power will work with Casella Waste Systems to deliver the landfill gas to Croda via pipeline. The gas had been used to supplement a nearby coal-fired generation facility which subsequently switched to natural gas.
