DTE Biomass Energy
DTE Biomass Energy designed, constructed and operates the gas collection system and blower station that delivers almost 1.8
million cubic feet of gas per day from the Cumberland County Landfill. The gas collection system includes 62 vertical gas
collection wells averaging 50 feet deep and two centrifugal blowers.
Cargill Incorporated purchases the gas after it is collected, compressed, dewatered and transported through a 2-mile pipeline
that extends under the Cape Fear River. Cargill burns the gas in a boiler and oil heater to partially satisfy the thermal
needs of its soybean processing facility.
