U.S. Gain announced a new renewable natural gas development project located in Springfield, Nebraska, which is producing much-needed clean fuel for the transportation industry, as well as a supply contract for Southern California Gas Company’s (SoCalGas) natural gas fueling station network. Both projects will be impactful in the development and supply of biomethane across the country.
As a vertically-integrated biomethane provider, U.S. Gain is diligently working with producers and developers on a multitude of landfill, agricultural and wastewater treatment biogas development projects – converting their waste to financially-rewarding, clean fuel. One of the most recent projects that U.S. Gain was involved in is the Sarpy County Landfill located in Springfield, Nebraska. This landfill will produce enough biomethane to fuel 117 Class 8 trucks daily, the equivalent of displacing more than 2.3 million gallons of diesel.
“We’re honored to have worked with a team of experienced professionals on development of the Sarpy County Landfill,” said U.S. Gain President Mike Koel. “These projects often take longer to develop than expected, but are completely worth all the effort when the final certification approval is received. The transportation industry needs clean fuel, and we’re committed to meeting the growing demand of biomethane. We currently have 20 development projects in process.”
“SoCalGas is excited to offer biomethane at many of our natural gas vehicle fueling stations from U.S. Gain,” said Jawaad Malik, vice president of Gas Acquisitions. “Renewable natural gas is an important tool in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions, that is why SoCalGas has committed to having 20% biomethane in our system by 2030.”
Bryan Nudelbacher, director of business development for U.S. Gain, said that providing biomethane throughout the SoCalGas fueling network will substantially improve air quality for residents in Southern California. “The best feature of renewable natural gas is the ability to provide up to 125% well-to-wheel emission savings when used in transportation,” he added. “We look forward to supplying the cleanest fuel option to more fleets and stations in California, as well as the rest of North America.”
