Renewable natural gas from waste resources and near-zero emission engines are revolutionizing clean refuse collection operations. This one-hour webinar hosted by Southern California Gas Company detailed the technology and implementation options for low-carbon, near-zero tailpipe emission refuse fleets.

Topics covered included:
  • Insight from a refuse fleet that has procured renewable fuel, produced renewable fuel from organic waste, and implemented a near-zero-emission engine project (“RNG+NZE”) to achieve immediate reductions of >60% for greenhouse gases and >90% for NOx.

  • How the combination of ultra-low NOx natural gas engines and renewable natural gas technologies can help meet state emission targets. These breakthrough developments offer the lowest overall emission profile for refuse among all commercially available advanced engine technologies.

  • Resources available to analyze the cost and emission benefits of RNG+NZE for your refuse operations.

Whitepaper: Game Changer: Next Generation Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Engines Fueled by Renewable Natural Gas
Published May 2016

This groundbreaking technical report was published following the September 2015 certification of the world’s first heavy-duty engine that emits oxides of nitrogen (NOx) at levels so low they are considered “near-zero.” This certification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board confirmed that a natural gas engine is now the cleanest commercially available option for heavy-duty vehicles. When fueled with ultra-low-carbon renewable natural gas, the widespread adoption of this engine technology can immediately and economically help transform America's heavy-duty transportation system, reduce petroleum dependence, improve ambient air quality, and address climate change.
