Biogas/Biomethane for use as a transport fuel

Production of biogas Biogas is a mixture of biomethane CH4 (65-70%) and CO2 (30-35%) and small amounts of other gases. It is created by anaerobic digestion of organic wastes such as sewage, manure, food wastes, landfill, etc. This is an established technology. After removal of contaminants, biomethane is the same as natural gas, and can […]

Landfill Gas

Landfill gas is created during the anaerobic decomposition of organic substances in municipal solid waste (MSW) and commercial and industrial (C&I) wastes. Depending upon the landfill design and its management, as well as waste composition, compaction, moisture and several other factors, thousands of landfills are available on worldwide to collect and utilize this valuable renewable energy source for power generation. If landfill gas is allowed to escape to atmosphere, methane contained within it’s a powerful greenhouse gas, 21 times more so than carbon dioxide. Therefore, its prevention of escape to atmosphere and its utilization as a renewable fuel source is win-win situation.

Renewable Natural Gas

Renewable natural gas (RNG), also called biomethane, is becoming more common as a vehicle fuel in the United States. RNG is produced from biogas – also known as swamp gas, landfill gas, or digester gas—which is the gaseous product of anaerobic digestion of organic matter. With minor cleanup, biogas can be used to generate electricity and heat. When processed to a higher purity standard, biogas is called RNG and can be used as an alternative fuel for natural gas vehicles.

Primer on Landfill Gas as Green Energy

“Landfill gas” is not the same thing as “natural gas” or “methane.” They are three separate terms which mean different things. They should not be used interchangeably. The term “landfill methane” is deceiving as it’s usually used to imply that landfill gas is simply methane.

1% Oxygen limit for biomethane injection agreed by HSE

HSE have announced that they have now issued a class exemption to GS(M)R to allow network conveyance of gas with an oxygen content <= 1% (molar) at pressures up to 38 barg. The exemption certificate will be held by HSE. This now means that gas conveyors will no longer need to request bespoke exemptions to […]
