Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Webinar: Case Study of University of California Renewable Natural Gas Projects

On January 27, 2021 at 2:00 PM [EST], LMOP will host a webinar with two speakers providing information about how the University of California (UC) is working with Archaea Energy and landfills across the country to meet its sustainability goals. UC set a goal to emit net zero greenhouse gases from its buildings and vehicle fleet by 2025, with a plan to achieve 40 percent of its natural gas from renewable sources by then.


Sam Schabacker, Renewable Energy Analyst, University of California – Sam leads biogas origination for UC. UC has both developed a landfill gas (LFG) processing plant and procured biogas via long-term offtake contracts as part of its ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2025. Sam will discuss both models and how biogas fits into UC’s comprehensive carbon neutrality strategy.

Nicholas Stork, CEO, Archaea Energy, LLC – Archaea is currently developing eight renewable natural gas (RNG) projects across the United States. Nicholas is also the co-founder and CFO of Noble Environmental Inc., which owns and operates two landfills in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Noble self-developed an LFG-to-RNG plant, which became the model for Archaea’s development.
