For the project, EDL will convert its existing landfill gas power plant at the Tessman Road landfill in San Antonio to a plant that can inject pipeline-quality gas into CPS Energy's system. Although the landfill methane will make up only 1 to 2 pct of the entire supply in CPS Energy's distribution system, it is expected to offset the fossil fuel-derived natural gas needed for an estimated 75 pct of VIA's fleet of 502 buses.

The utility recently began purchasing RNG from Pixley-based Calgren Dairy Fuels (Calgren), the largest dairy biogas operation in the U.S.
To encourage the growth and use of RNG, SoCalGas has also proposed offering customers the option to purchase a portion of their natural gas from renewable sources. Additionally, California recently enacted legislation that expands the definition of renewable natural gas to include organic waste such as dead trees, agricultural waste and vegetation removed for wildfire mitigation which is typically converted to RNG by non-combustion thermal conversion.
In the next three and a half years, at least 160 RNG production facilities will produce more than 15.8 million therms of carbon-negative RNG every year and replace about 119 million gallons of diesel fuel -- enough to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 3.4 million tpy -- equivalent of taking more than 730,000 cars off the road.
A 2016 study by the University of California, Davis found California has the potential to produce approximately 90.6 billion cubic feet (bcf) per year of renewable natural gas from dairy, landfill, municipal solid waste, and wastewater treatment plant sources alone -- sufficient to meet the annual natural gas needs of around 2.3 million California homes. According to the U.S. DOE the U.S. currently produces 1 trillion cubic feet of renewable natural gas every year, and that number is expected to increase to 10 trillion by 2030.

The researchers see abundant possibilities for RNG in Iowa and beyond to address greenhouse gas emissions and to diversify farm income and reduce pollution in the state's waterways.
The development of biofuels is a major recommendation in Iowa's 2016 energy plan and the state economic development authority's 2018 Biomass Conversion Action Plan which has been funding research into various anaerobic digestion techniques.
According to a 2013 National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) inventory, Iowa produces more manure than any other state but the sources are not sufficiently concentrated to make digestion feasible or economically profitable.
Researchers hope to enhance the efficiency, reduce the costs and create ancillary income streams that will persuade farmers in Iowa and beyond to add AD to their operations. To that end, the researchers will explore the use of mixed prairie grasses and winter cover crops, such as annual rye, for AD.
The project is funded with a $10 million grant from the USDA. (Source: Iowa State University, PR, Aug., 2020) Contact: Iowa State University, Prof. Lisa Schulte Moore, Natural Resource Ecology and Management, (515) 294-7339, , www.iastate.edu

The anaerobic digester at S&S Jerseyland Dairy has been operational since 2011, initially converting waste from the farm's 4,000 herd of Jersey cows to renewable power. U.S. Gain purchased the farm's digester in September of 2019 and made the upgrades needed for fuel production. Gas collected at the facility is taken through a complex processing system that results in RNG comprised of 99.5 pct methane. The facility recently obtained project certification from the California Air Resources Board, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency
A key partner to U.S. Gain throughout the project was Nacelle Solutions, a leader in developing gas clean-up equipment specifically designed for the RNG industry. "Methane recovery was maximized through additional processing capabilities in the upgrade portion of the plant, specifically a third stage membrane process. The more plants we do, the more efficient and streamlined we become, enabling speed to market with reliable results," explained Nacelle's Co-Founder, Gov Graney.
Nacelle provides innovative technology solutions and 24/7/365 operations and service ensuring a high level of performance and success. Since inception, Nacelle has executed 150+ different projects with an average throughput of 2000 scfm (~3 million scf per day) of processed gas. Nacelle is committed to gas conditioning technologies and service that meet the complex and evolving demands of the energy and biogas industries.

At $17.1 million (Cdn), the first contract is for the supply of biogas upgrading and related equipment to an as yet unidentified multi-location dairy farm cluster in California. Greenlane's systems will create clean renewable natural gas (RNG) for injection into the local gas distribution network, owned and operated by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E).
The second contract, worth $3.5 million , is part of the same cluster but is subject to final financing approval. Greenlane confirmed the name of the purchaser is being withheld at this time.

While current biogas-upgrading technology removes the CO2 from biogas, this new technology captures the CO2 and converts it into additional renewable fuel. The new demonstration shows that improved catalyst activity could speed reactions by five times and nearly double conversion efficiency, making the technology commercially competitive with other new biogas upgrading methods, according to the release.
The 12-month R&D effort was funded by SoCalGas and PG&E, and builds on an initial 2018 feasibility study.

Canada is the world's fourth largest natural gas producer. Renewable natural gas (RNG) production represents an opportunity to reduce carbon emissions of natural gas by creating renewable gas from organic waste sources, that can be blended with fossil natural gas to reduce the overall carbon intensity, according to the Xebec release.
