DTE Vantage and NextEra Energy Resources collaborate with the City of Riverview to generate renewable natural gas from local landfill

RIVERVIEW, Mich., March 21, 2024 – DTE Vantage is converting biogas from a City of Riverview landfill into renewable natural gas (RNG) which will soon fuel vehicles as a cleaner alternative resource. The project is the result of a collaboration between the City of Riverview and Riverview Energy Systems ─ an entity jointly owned by DTE Vantage and a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC.

The project, which dates back to the late 1980s, converts an existing landfill- gas-to-renewable-electricity project into a new facility that captures the biogas produced at the landfill and upgrades it to pipeline-quality natural gas.  The RNG is then sent to a DTE Energy natural gas pipeline and attributed for use by transportation fuel customers.

DTE Vantage has unmatched experience in identifying a landfill site’s unique strengths and determining whether the extracted biogas is well-suited for electric production or conversion to RNG for distribution and sale.

“The greenhouse gas we capture and utilize at the Riverview Land Preserve landfill not only reduces carbon emissions in the area but also displaces higher-emissions transportation fuels for greater environmental benefit, all while generating additional income for the City,” said Kevin Dobson, vice president of biomass, DTE Vantage. “We are working closely with City of Riverview officials to coordinate the ongoing project, which leverages DTE Vantage’s growing network of RNG resources and capabilities.”

NextEra Energy Resources, which together with its affiliated entities is the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and sun and a world leader in battery storage, develops renewable fuels solutions to meet customer needs. “This collaboration underscores NextEra Energy Resources’ commitment to developing solutions in pursuit of leading the energy transition,” said Ross Groffman, vice president at NextEra Energy Resources.

“Riverview Land Preserve is a leader in the solid waste industry. This dynamic partnership really demonstrates that when forward-thinking groups come together the community benefits,” said Andrew Swift, Mayor of the City of Riverview. “This is a win for the environment, DTE, NextEra Energy Resources, our city, and the residents of Riverview who will benefit from royalties generated.”
