SANTA ANA, Calif. – The Orange County Board of Supervisors today gave a green light to an academic-government-business partnership that will convert landfill gas into clean energy at the closed Santiago Canyon Landfill. In addition to the County’s closed landfill, the partnership includes UC Irvine’s Advanced Power & Energy Program (APEP) and Ener-Core, an Irvine-based company.

“Creating clean energy power from landfill gas is a smart investment that helps the environment and advances science and engineering,” said Board Chairman Todd Spitzer, who has championed renewable energy projects, including the new power plant being built at the County’s Frank R. Bowerman Landfill east of Irvine. “Advancing important technology that helps the environment and potentially generates revenue is the best way for Orange County to do business as a leader in clean energy projects.”
