Galileo CNG Equipment Distributor to Handle Renewable Fuel
Connecticut-based Verdek, a distributor of natural gas vehicle fueling equipment manufactured by Argentina’s Galileo, said today that it’s increasing its involvement in biogas, which it will process into pipeline- or vehicle-grade biomethane – also known as RNG, for renewable natural gas.
Biogas will be sourced from anaerobic digesters that process both municipal and agricultural waste, says Verdek CEO Guy Mannino. Product can be injected into the pipeline system, or trucked as compressed natural gas to vehicle or industrial customers.
“By taking organic wastes and turning them into higher value products, the amount of landfills and incineration plants in use can be drastically reduced,” states today’s announcement.
‘We Have the Equipment’
“As other energy prices rise, it becomes more relevant for companies such as ourselves to enter the market,” Verdek says. “We can avoid the disposal costs and negative environmental impact of waste, while providing reliable baseload generation.
“We have the equipment necessary to perform all stages of the gas treatment.”
As it does for CNG (using such products as Galileo’s Microbox and Nanobox), and can do for LNG/liquefied natural gas (the Cryobox), Verdek will use Galileo equipment to upgrade biogas to biomethane/RNG, Mannino told F&F.
