Biogas Presentation

Posted by Mike Pauley on August 29, 2014 in Events

Stephanie Thorson, Canadian Biogas Association, will be giving a presentation on Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in Cox Institute Rm 257, Agriculture Campus, Truro. She will be talking on opportunities of Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).

Renewable natural gas (RNG) is a little-known fuel that has enormous potential to economically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation, a sector that has high emissions. 
In the same way that ethanol is blended with gasoline and biodiesel is blended with diesel fuel, RNG can be blended with natural gas for compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles or liquified natural gas (LNG) vehicles. The Biogas Association is working to develop RNG as a vehicle fuel to cost-effectively improve the environmental performance of the transportation sector.
