The purpose of this grant is to help the Rural Community-Based LFG project facilitate the realization of economic development benefits in North Carolina’s rural communities through converting landfills into an economic development asset by providing a low-cost source of heat and electricity for small business start-ups with a focus on greenhouse-based horticulture and value-added processing for agriculture. The project will train 60 local development officials and community leaders from 15 counties on procedures, technologies, and techniques for converting landfill gas into community economic development projects. ASU will submit defined strategic business models for 4 targeted communities.
