The California Energy Commission (CEC) has approved a $3.05 million grant for CalBio's Kern County facility that will turn dairy biogas into carbon negative transportation fuel that will provide enormous air quality benefits to the San Joaquin Valley and beyond.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture has announced the recipients of its 2017 dairy digester funding. Of the $35 million that CDFA awarded, BAC members received $32 million.
Tom Price of All Power Labs talks about carbon negative energy from gasification of organic waste.
George Minter, Senior VP of SoCalGas, explains why California should continue to invest in the gas sector, especially renewable biogas.
CR&R and Southern California Gas Company are near completion of the state's first pipeline biomethane project in many years. Once the pipeline interconnection is complete, it will transmit carbon negative biogas from CR&R's facility to SoCalGas customers for transportation fuel, power generation and other uses.
BAC member The Climate Trust has issued a report on the low carbon economy that finds that clean energy industries have increased jobs at a far greater pace than the coal industry has lost jobs. The benefit is especially great in rural areas and in states with strong carbon and clean energy policies.
Congratulations to Sierra Energy for winning the prestigious Roddenberry Prize for its innovative FastOx technology to convert waste to energy.
CR&R and SoCalGas have broken ground on a new pipeline to bring renewable, low carbon biogas to SoCalGas customers.
