U.S. Gain brings another development project online and sends more clean fuel to California
 

April 1, 2019. U.S. Gain announces a new renewable natural gas (RNG) development project located in Springfield, Nebraska, which is producing much-needed clean fuel for the transportation industry, as well as a RNG 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 RNG across the country.

   As a vertically-integrated RNG provider, U.S. Gain is diligently working with producers and developers on a multitude of landfill, agricultural and wastewater treatment RNG 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 RNG to fuel 117 class eight 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 RNG. We currently have 20 RNG development projects in process.”

   RNG is methane captured from landfill, wastewater treatment plant and agricultural waste that is cleaned and conditioned to meet natural gas pipeline quality standards. Once the gas is certified for use, it can be dispensed through natural gas fueling stations as a drop-in fuel, with no changes to fueling equipment or vehicles.
