Biogas RINs, Enough to Power 471 Garbage Trucks

Biogas RINs, Enough to Power 471 Garbage Trucks December 11, 2014  Biomass MagazineIn a recent issue of Biomass Magazine, Amanda Bilek outlines the staggering growth of the cellulosis renewable information number (RIN) market from compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquified natural gas (LNG): they surged from 3.5 million in August 2014 to 7.5 million in September 2014.  The generation of 7.5 million cellulosic RINs in September sounds impressive, but how does that translate into fuel? The amount of renewable CNG and LNG from 7.5 million cellulosic RINs is enough to run 471 garbage trucks for an entire year. The equivalent of 471 garbage trucks would be burning renewable fuel instead of conventional diesel, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality.
