BDN Reports on Plans to Scrap Pipeline Between Old Town Landfill, UMaine

The Bangor Daily News reported a proposed seven-mile methane gas pipeline between Juniper Ridge landfill in Old Town and the University of Maine has been scrapped because of lack of financing, according to an official with the landfill’s parent company Casella Waste Systems Inc. UMaine spokeswoman Margaret Nagle said the university and Casella are reserving the right to continue discussions should the opportunity present itself to create a pipeline that would provide cheap, renewable heat to the campus.
