  1. 1. Renewable Natural Gas- PART 2<br />Examples and Case Studies of RNG<br />Production<br />Distribution<br />Use (particularly for vehicles)<br />Barriers to Greater Use of RNG<br />Regulatory<br />Economic<br />Technological<br />Actions You Can Take<br />
  2. 2. Swedish Biomethane Vehicles<br />
  3. 3. Methane Gas Vehicles in Sweden<br />Trucks<br />Buses<br />Cars<br />Total<br />37% growth annually!<br />
  4. 4. Bus<br />Public<br />Total<br />Methane Fueling Stations in Sweden<br />25 % growth annually<br />25% growth annually!<br />
  5. 5. Waste Management - Linde<br />Altamont, CA<br />Waste Mgmt & Linde collect landfill gas - upgrade, liquefy & dispense LBG for trucks<br />13,000 gallons of LBG produced daily<br />
  6. 6. Waste Management – Linde<br />High Mountain Fuels - $11 million in CEC funding (AB118)<br />Simi Valley, CA<br />Follow-on to Altamont landfill project<br />Implementing commercialization of new landfill gas clean-up technology<br />GHGs estimated to be 85% below the diesel baseline<br />LNG to be used in Waste Management fleet – 500 trucks<br />
  7. 7. California AB118 Program<br />$5.5 million to CR&R Waste and Recycling Services<br />Perris, CA<br />Municipal solid waste to biomethane <br />The company runs its trash vehicles on CNG/LNG<br />$3.9 million to Northstate Rendering Co <br />Oroville, CA <br />Rendering waste into RNG vehicle fuel <br />Used for the company’s fleet of trucks. <br />Injected into the Pacific Gas and Electric pipeline and sold as vehicle fuel to CNG fleets<br />$1.8 million to Eurisko Scientific<br />Elk Grove, CA (Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District)<br />Use wastewater sludge to produce RNG<br />Clean Energy will distribute the RNG for transportation use<br />
  8. 8. Hilarides (Hilmar) Dairy<br />
  9. 9. Emissions Benefits<br />
  10. 10. Barriers to Greater RNG Use<br />Policy/Regulatory<br />Need an RNG in transportation policy model similar to renewable electricity on the grid – incentives, taxes, price supports<br />Need to standardize injection procedures and reduce interconnection cost to NG Pipeline for distribution<br />Economics and Market Development<br />Lack of Awareness: Education and Outreach to promote RNG in transportation <br />Make the business case versus other renewable fuels – best option in HD sector; GHG benefits; Fuels standards<br />Develop demand based on renewable quality – create price premium over fossil natural gas<br />Current low cost of fossil NG is a challenge <br />Connect users and producers – supply and demand<br />Technology<br />Lower cost gas cleanup technology/systems<br />
  11. 11. Actions You Can Take<br />Convert to Conventional NG<br />Where that makes sense<br />Can shift to RNG when available<br />Demand RNG for your NG fleet<br />CALSTART<br />Website (<br />White Papers and Reports<br />Help finding trucks and RNG, deployments, testing<br />CALSTART RNG-IAG<br />Tackling the barriers as a unified industry voice<br />Open for membership!!<br />
