The CPUC has released a draft proposal to require the state’s gas utilities to procure 75 billion cubic feet of biomethane annually by 2030.
Cummins Westport has just announced that California’s natural gas truck fleet is now providing carbon negative emissions – removing more carbon from the air than the trucks generate – a huge contribution to California’s fight against climate change!
Bioenergy is critical to slow global warming right away and to reach carbon neutrality by mid-century. That’s because bioenergy can reduce the most damaging climate pollutants known as Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs). Climate scientists agree that we have less than a decade left to avert catastrophic – and largely irreversible – climate change. The most […]
Raven SR has announced a joint venture to build 100 new hydrogen fueling hubs, starting in California, that will convert organic waste to low carbon and carbon negative hydrogen fuel for heavy duty vehicles.
Princeton University has released a study led by top climate scientists in the US that shows that bioenergy and renewable hydrogen are critical to achieve carbon neutrality in the US.
SoCalGas has announced a goal of zero net carbon emissions, from its operations and energy deliveries, by 2045, which is the same as the state of California’s goal for reaching carbon neutrality.
See local news coverage of the Hitachi Zosen Inova project in San Luis Obispo County, one of the first food waste to electricity projects in operation in California.
The Bakersfield Californian profiled San Joaquin Renewables’ agricultural waste to energy project in Kern County, highlighting its benefits for air quality, climate change, and local job creation.
CARB has approved a plan to phase out the open burning of ag waste that calls for increased bioenergy as a much cleaner, more beneficial alternative to open burning.
