Located in Toledo, Oregon, Georgia-Pacific's largest energy source is biomass – wood fiber, bark and other organic materials created as a by-product of manufacturing their paper products. Energy generated from the biomass facility is used to power its manufacturing facilities, decreasing the intensity of purchased energy (non-biomass) and associated greenhouse gas emissions in its operations.
Located in Baldwin, Florida, the Trail Ridge Landfill Gas Recovery project captures methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, released by the decomposing waste. The gas is fed into a generator with a nameplate capacity of 9.6 MW which creates enough energy to power approximately 42,300 homes.
