FortisBC's RNG program kicked off in 2011 and was the first utility in North America to offer RNG to customers as a simple way to lower their greenhouse gas emissions. FortisBC now has 15 new RNG supply agreements approved by its regulator, the British Columbia Utilities Commission. FortisBC currently works with nine biogas producers (six in in BC and three out of province) to produce RNG. The company also aims to have contracts in place for around 24 petajoules of renewable gas by 2025, representing around 10 percent of its natural gas supply (Source: FortisBC, PR, Website, 15 Sept., 2021)

The biogas will be used for two functions: 460 scfm of treated biogas will fuel an INNIO engine to generate renewable electricity and heat to support the local operations and; over 1,500 scfm of raw biogas will be cleaned and injected into the national gas grid where it will be marketed into the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard program and capture D3 renewable identification numbers (RINs). The installation will also enable the avoidance of 150,000 tpy of CO2 emissions.

According to the Gevo website, "The concept of a Net-Zero Project is to convert renewable energy (photosynthetic, wind, renewable natural gas, biogas) from a variety of sources into energy dense liquid hydrocarbons that when burned in traditional engines, have the potential to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the whole lifecycle of the liquid fuel: from the way carbon is captured from the atmosphere, processed to make liquid fuel products, and including the burning as a transportation fuel."
Net-Zero 1 is currently expected to have a capacity of 45 million gpy of hydrocarbons (for gasoline and jet fuel, based on current take-or-pay contracts), to produce more than 350,000,000 ppy of high protein feed products for use in the food chain, to produce enough renewable natural gas to be self-sufficient for the production process needs, and also to generate renewable electricity with a combined heat and power system. Net-Zero 1 is also expected to utilize wind energy.

The pipeline is part of the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester Project which is developing a network of lagoon digesters connected via a biogas pipeline to produce renewable natural gas (RNG).
The pipeline will transport the renewable biogas from the dairies to the Aemetis biogas upgrading facility at the Aemetis ethanol production plant in Keyes, California, where the biogas will be transformed into commercial-grade RNG for use as a carbon-negative “drop in” transportation fuel.
The planned 52 dairies in the Aemetis biogas project are expected to capture more than 1.4 million MMBtu of dairy methane and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to an estimated 5.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 each year. The captured methane will be transformed to carbon-negative transportation fuel to displace petroleum-based diesel throughout the State of California. The 5.2 million metric tonnes of annual CO2 emissions reduction from the Aemetis Biogas project is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 1.1 million cars from the road.
Aemetis Carbon Zero products include zero carbon fuels that can “drop in” to be used in airplane, truck, and ship fleets. Aemetis low-carbon fuels have substantially reduced carbon intensity compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle.

The revised regulation will enable new on-farm biogas systems and expansion of existing systems to be more easily approved and at a lower cost, and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting waste from the landfill through increased maximum allowable limits and new types of off-farm anaerobic digestion materials and by encouraging production of renewable natural gas (RNG).
According to the release, "changes to regulations under the Nutrient Management Act will create more opportunities for farmers to treat on-farm materials as well as other types of off-farm food and organic waste materials in on-farm regulated mixed anaerobic digestion facilities. This will enable an increase in on-farm production of biogas to generate renewable natural gas and will provide Ontario farmers with a new source of on-farm income.

The agreement involves the joint development of onboard carbon capture solutions for ships using the Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) technology developed by Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES) which was acquired by Chart in December 2020. The SES patented technology, which utilizes Chart's expertise in cryogenic equipment and systems, will separate the CO2 from the ships' exhaust gases, resulting in a high purity liquid CO2 product that is stored onboard in cryogenic storage tanks to be either permanently stored in underground geological formations or be used in CO2 -- consuming industries.
When fully developed, the carbon capture solution will be available as a key element in the TECO 2030 Future Funnel, an exhaust gas cleaning system for ships. TECO 2030 is also developing hydrogen fuel cells for the maritime industry. These will enable ships to switch from fossil fuels to green hydrogen produced by renewable energy and thereby emissions-free.

Opportunities to generate income from these technologies include the generation of renewable electricity and the production of biobased products from manure, renewable natural gas (RNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The project will use Greenlane's Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA') biogas upgrading systems to create clean renewable natural gas (RNG) at a multi-location California dairy farm cluster through anaerobic digestion of the farm waste stream. The RNG will be supplied as fuel for the U.S. transportation sector.
According to the release, "Greenlane is the only biogas upgrading company offering the three main technologies: water wash, pressure swing adsorption, and membrane separation to remove trace impurities from the biogas stream and separate carbon dioxide from biomethane to create a clean, high-purity low-carbon fuel: RNG, no matter the size, feedstock or application.
The company has 30 years industry experience, patented proprietary technology, and over 110 biogas upgrading systems supplied into 18 countries, including the world's largest biogas upgrading facility."

The first contract is for the supply of its pressure swing adsorption biogas upgrading system to a municipality in Colombia. Engineering work will commence immediately with a notice to proceed on equipment fabrication expected later this year. This project will be the first commercial-scale biogas upgrading system deployed in Colombia, producing clean, low-carbon renewable natural gas (RNG) for direct injection into the local natural gas grid.
The second contract is for the supply of Greenlane's water wash biogas upgrading system in Spain. Order fulfillment of this contract will commence immediately, however, and for further transparency, the customer has a two-week period in which it may exercise an option to halt further activity with no penalty. For competitive reasons, individual contract amounts have not been disclosed at this time.
"Greenlane continues to expand its pioneering global reach with a new system contract win in Colombia, which marks Greenlane's 19th country for technology deployment and 12th country to be the first to supply biogas upgrading equipment. Supplying biogas upgrading equipment for the first time into Columbia is further evidence that RNG continues to be globally recognized as a key component of the overall decarbonization solution. We see a significant opportunity in South America and continue to be seen as a market leader with multiple technologies, allowing us to be competitive on a global scale," according to Greenlane CEO Brad Douville.
