The Production and Use of Renewable Natural Gas as a Climate Strategy in the United States
"The Production and Use of Renewable Natural Gas as a Climate Strategy in the United States," a Working Paper by Rebecca Gasper and Tim Searchinger with the World Resources Institute, was released in late April and offers a positive assessment -- from a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction lens -- on renewable natural gas (RNG) produced by anaerobic digesters. "Generally speaking, RNG has potential as an effective GHG reduction strategy when it meets two conditions: It is produced from organic waste, and its production and use results in net methane emissions reductions," states the paper.

Biogas microgrids could reduce odors and outages for hog farm neighbors
Butler, a spry 77-year-old who still runs the operation, covered his waste pits to help reduce odor.

The Farm Bill's Tough Path
House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway appears determined to bring the farm bill to the House floor next week, and he may get the 215 Republican votes needed to pass it. But the uncertainty within the Trump administration over trade policy and the Renewable Fuel Standard, as well as growing criticism of changes to the food-stamp program, mean that the process of passing this bill is likely to be lengthy -- if it passes in this Congress at all. Conaway is planning meetings this week to sway uncertain Republicans and is hoping to get a whip count before the end of the week. More>>

St. Petersburg City Council learns nothing solid about biosolids
The city planned to send biogas to the utility, which in turn would set up infrastructure that would allow the city to use its own byproduct to power its sanitation trucks and the Southwest sewage plant. Doing so, city staff estimated, would save an estimated $31.6 million. City Council voted to move the project forward in January 2016, based on those projected savings. That savings estimate has since dropped more than 50 percent, to $14.8 million. What happened? Tankersley and staff are no longer sure whether the biogas can be used to power its sanitation trucks. The city had planned to partner with Peoples Gas to provide a pipeline for the trucks, but the energy company has yet to commit. More>>

That means the same collection trucks that pick up Toronto's organic waste could ultimately be fueled by that waste. The City is currently in the process of expanding its Dufferin Organics Processing Facility to increase its organics processing capacity and build a biogas cleanup facility in order to produce RNG.

Hog waste suits may bring change
It was the first of dozens of lawsuits filed by neighbors of massive swine farms in North Carolina...But then, it's not all that surprising. The industry is using waste-disposal techniques that are appropriate to the 19th century, not the 21st...In truth, there are many better ways of getting rid of the waste, including some new techniques that make the effluent generate additional cash. A Duke University study found that one technique for producing biogas from hog waste could produce energy for as little as 5 cents per kilowatt hour -- about the same cost as solar power. More>>

In North Carolina, Hog Waste Is Becoming A Streamlined Fuel Source
In late March, a project in eastern North Carolina revealed the potential to turn every hog farm in the state into a source of renewable natural gas, or what's known as swine biogas. Most people think the purpose of biogas is to create green fuel, but that's actually the byproduct. The main purpose of creating biogas is to destroy methane and earn valuable carbon offset credits -- methane is a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
