Leaders in the field of ultra-low carbon renewable natural gas (RNG) gathered at a recent awards event hosted by the sustainable energy nonprofit Energy Vision, which promotes renewable, low-carbon energy and transportation solutions, to recognize that RNG production and use for transport, electricity generation and heating is scaling up across the U.S.
According to Energy Vision, RNG is the lowest carbon fuel available and a powerful strategy for lowering greenhouse-gas emissions. Made from the biogases emitted as organic material in wastewater, agricultural waste, and food and yard waste decomposes, RNG has a fraction of the carbon footprint of diesel, gasoline or other petroleum-based fuels. Further, when made from food waste processed in anaerobic digesters and used as vehicle fuel, RNG can be net carbon-negative over its lifecycle.
