BETHLEHEM — While the Casella Waste Systems landfill remains a point of contention in town, with the majority of voters wanting it to close, one new proposal at the facility is generating far less controversy — a plant that would convert landfill methane, a big greenhouse gas contributor, to a clean and renewable form of natural gas.

And even if the landfill does close in a few years, it can still produce enough methane to keep the plant going for about 15 years.
