KBTX story from 2014. I do not know anything about whether it is cost effective or not, but thought it was interesting back then and surprised there has been no news since. Anybody know the story?

From what I remember it was demmed no longer cost effective.

The price of nat gas was much higher in 2014. I doubt landfill extraction will be profitable anytime soon.

Yep - Too expensive after natural gas forward prices started dropping in 2014.

It costs mid $60s/MWh and had limited dispatch flexibility. The forward market for baseload power is currently mid $20s/MWh.

It is good for all involved (COCS/CSU, COB/BTU, & BVSWMA) that this project never went forward.
