Clean Methane Systems LLC and EIP Ventures, LLC announced a joint venture named “EcoRNG” to develop more than 10 million gallons of renewable fuels from existing waste streams at landfills, waste water treatment facilities and dairies throughout Oregon. EcoRNG’s plan is to capture harmful waste gases and converting them into pipeline-quality biomethane. The project will displace millions of gallons of diesel, lessen dependence on fossil fuels, reduce emissions and demonstrate a productive use of waste stream bi-products.
Clean Methane Systems LLC, and its acquired operations, has provided technological solutions to the biogas industry for more than 20 years. EIP Ventures, LLC is a strategic advisor, developer and asset manager of cutting edge, socially conscious water and renewable energy projects.
“This joint venture is an innovative solution that requires cooperation among regulators, consumers, utilities and producers,” said Tim Robinson, president of Clean Methane Systems. “The collaboration will provide meaningful environmental and economic benefits to our region. We aim to produce better, healthier, and locally produced energy and fueling options.”
The EcoRNG aggregation project in Oregon includes installing biogas upgrade and conditioning equipment at existing production facilities, converting the raw biogas into pipeline-quality renewable natural gas, transporting it to a central injection site and marketing the gas for use as environmentally friendly vehicle fuel.
