With gas on the rise, environment on the mind, and budgets on the chopping block, can you fuel and green the fleet? According to biogas expert Mark J. Torresani, P.E., yes…and cost effectively.
Biogas offers an alternative to gasoline, diesel vehicle fuel and natural gas that’s both environmentally beneficial and cost effective for fleets of all sizes. Thanks to innovation in conversion methods, an expansion of natural gas vehicles, and a continued price increase in oil-based vehicle fuels, projects using biogas-based fuel-to-power vehicles are now becoming a reality throughout the world for municipalities and organizations. Available for production from a variety of sources (e.g., wastewater treatment plants, and industrial, food waste and agricultural waste digesters), biogas-to-fuel offers measurable economic benefits, sustainable fuel source product opportunities, necessary emissions requirements compliance, and improved air quality.
Join Senior Project Engineer Mark J. Torresani, P.E. of Cornerstone Environmental Group LLC in an exploration of the opportunities, technology and potential savings of using biogas to fuel fleets of all sizes. Through discussion of real-world application and lessons learned from the implementation and operation of the landfill gas-to-BioCNG system located at the Rodefeld landfill near Madison, Wisconsin, this webinar will cover:
- the technical and financial issues associated with converting and using biogas as a vehicle fuel in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG);
- the technical challenges and methods to remove contaminants from biogas to meet engine manufactures’ specifications and fuel performance;
- the fundamentals of selecting equipment for treating biogas, fueling vehicles and selecting vehicles; and,
- the keys to integrating system components.
This webcast is intended to offer attendees a better understanding of the potential to develop biogas-to-vehicle fueling projects, as well as the benefits and challenges of using biogas as a vehicle fuel.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- how biogas can be used as a vehicle fuel
- the benefits of using biogas as a vehicle fuel
- comparisons of biogas, natural gas, gasoline, and diesel as a vehicle fuel
- the components needed for a successful biogas-to-vehicle fuel project
