Clean Energy Fuels and CR&R Tell How It’s Done:
The Issues and Opportunities for Biomethane Fuel

Call it RNG – for renewable natural gas – or call it biomethane: either way it’s available today, quantities are growing, and it’s the fuel with the best potential to reduce greenhouse emissions now – and even save operators money.

Those were the views put forward today at the RNG Gets Real webinar organized by Fleets & Fuels publisher Gladstein, Neandross & Associates and sponsored by Clean Energy Fuels.

The webinar is the first of a series leading up to GNA’s ACT Expo 2015, taking place May 4-7 in Dallas.

‘Perfect Drop-In Fuel’

“Renewable natural gas is very real,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at GNA and today’s webinar moderator. It can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 90%, he said, “at a cost substantially lower than diesel.”

Clean Energy Renewable Fuels gets its biomethane for Redeem from more than a dozen sources, inc;luding landfills in Michigan and Tennessee operated by Republic Services.

Clean Energy’s CERF unit (Clean Energy Renewable Fuels) launched its Redeem brand RNG in 2013 and today offers the fuel throughout its network of natural gas vehicle fueling stations in California.

“Biomethane is a perfect drop-in fuel,” CERF president Harrison Clay said today. “It reduces greenhouse gas emissions by the greatest degree of any alternative fuel.”

Credits Are Key

Clay reviewed Clean Energy’s entry into RNG and how the firm now gets its biomethane from three landfills and a dozen other sources. He also reviewed how credits such as those available via the U.S. EPA’s Renewable Fuel Standard are critical to biomethane viability, as the current “cost of production exceeds the price of [conventional, fossil-based] natural gas in the grid.”

Paul Relis, executive VP at CR&R Waste and Recycling Services, an Orange County, Calif.-based hauler and recycler, detailed his company’s use of RNG and its plans to expand production in Perris, south of San Bernardino.

Share the Wealth

Through four phases between now and 2020, CR&R hopes to ramp up to production of 4 million diesel gallon equivalents of biomethane per year. Relis says that the U.S. should by rights have from 60 to 80 such facilities. “There should be at least 5,000 to 7,000 heavy trucks fueled by renewable natural gas,” he said.

“Clearly that’s not going to be done by my company,” he said, inviting other interested parties to get on board.

Sauk Trail Hills Biomethane This Month

August 6, 2012 in Biomethane, CNG, LNG, NGVs by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

Watch for Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) to step up the promotion of product from CERF, its Clean Energy Renewable Fuels unit, when its project with Republic Services at the Sauk Trail Hills landfill in Canton, Mich. starts producing pipeline-quality natural gas, aka biomethane, later this month.
