CNG Vehicles Can Use a Renewable Fuel

 

Biogas is a mix of methane, carbon dioxide, water, and other trace gases that can be purified into biomethane, also known as renewable natural gas (RNG). This fuel can then be used directly in compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. The raw biogas is usually sourced from landfills, waste water treatment plants or anaerobic digesters, making it a 'waste-derived' and ultra-low carbon transportation fuel.

Waste Management uses the Altamont landfill to provide the equivalent of 13,000 gallons per day of RNG for their trucks.

Hilarides Dairy uses biomethane to offset 650 gallons a day of diesel use in their fleet.

Quasar Energy Group is a Cleveland, Ohio based waste-to-energy company who have several biomethane to vehicle fuel projects in Ohio.
