Use waste from food processing industries to feed an aerobic digester and generate biogas for vehicle fuel. Industrial processes, particularly those from the food processing industry, generate a great deal of organic waste, which can be used as a feedstock for an anaerobic digester.
Animal and crop wastes produce biogas for alternative fuels. Animal and crop wastes are frequently used as a feedstock for anaerobic digesters. Swine and dairy farms, as well as other facilities that handle manure as liquids and slurries, are incorporating biogas recovery systems, including anaerobic digesters that capture and combust biogas to produce alternative fuels, like BioCNG, or generate electricity, heat or hot water.
There are about 120,000 natural gas vehicles (NGVs) on U.S. roads today and more than 14.8 million worldwide. More and more NGVs take to the road every day – and the trend is being “fueled” by environmental, energy security and economic market drivers. Sales are projected to grow at a whopping 25 percent a year.
