Leyline invests in waste-to-value streams including anaerobic digestion projects. Typical projects take in cow manure, swine manure, or food waste, and process them to generate renewable natural gas – which can then be sold to generate revenue.
Anaerobic digestion has a positive environmental benefit as well: instead of the waste decomposing and releasing methane into the atmosphere, the gas is captured, which reduces the environmental impact.Anaerobic Digestion Projects
Leyline invests in utility scale solar projects – the kind that are able to generate enough electricity to power anywhere from dozens to thousands of homes.
Utilizing a readily available and reliable source of energy such as the sun has already been proven to make a substantial contribution to de-carbonizing the U.S. energy grid.Solar Power Projects

Wind power projects use large turbines to harness the power of the wind and generate electricity, which can be fed onto the electrical grid to power homes and businesses.
When wind turbines produce electricity, the load on traditional power sources such as coal and gas is reduced – making the overall electrical grid energy mix cleaner. The United States currently produces about 300billion kWh of wind energy per year, representing 7% of total utility-scale electrical generation.Wind Power Projects
Excess energy produced by solar or wind projects can be stored in large-scale batteries and fed onto the grid at a later time – allowing intermittent sources of energy to be better utilized and smoothing out peaks and valleys in generation.
Utility scale battery storage is an emerging technology with great potential for increasing penetration of renewables into the overall electricity mix, enhancing electrical flows and helping ensure that customers have access to a reliable supply of electricity.Battery Storage Projects
Gas collection systems can be installed in most landfills, allowing landfill gas to be rerouted out of the atmosphere and into vehicles for fuel.
Landfill gas collection systems typically help reduce bad smells emitted by landfills. And they have a major environmental benefit as well: As uncollected organic waste in landfills breaks down, it releases methane into the atmosphere – accounting for 15% of human-related carbon emissions in the US.Landfill Gas Projects
