R2E2 Methane

Safety Flare

November 30, 2022

MethaneBurn-11When driving over the Leo Frigo bridge or passing by NEW Water’s Green Bay campus, you may notice our safety flare. The flare is designed to safely burn gas from our digestion process. The flare intermittently operates as needed. With some equipment down for repairs right now, the flare is currently being utilized more than normal. The flare was installed as part of our Resource Recovery & Electrical Energy (R2E2) facility.
