LBNL just released an important study showing that the biochar and digestate produced as a byproduct of bioenergy can provide half or more of all the carbon needed to restore forest, farm and rangelands to net carbon sinks in California.
California Bioenergy is working with Bloom Energy to develop the first ever dairy digester to electric vehicle fueling project, which will use fuel cells rather than combustion to convert the dairy biogas to carbon negative power.
The UC System just announced an agreement with Anaergia to buy biogas as part of the UC's goal of achieving zero carbon emissions by mid century.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture has just announced its latest round of funding awards for dairy digester projects. CDFA announced a total of $67 million in grant funding for 43 projects, including several being developed by BAC members.
Several BAC members have received Wood Innovation Grants from the U.S. Forest Service to develop small-scale bioenergy projects using forest waste from wildfire reduction and forest restoration projects.
See GNA's excellent article in Advanced Clean Transportation News on Why Biogas is Critical to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the Transportation Sector.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture has just announced the recipients of $69.9 million in Cap & Trade revenues for 40 dairy digester projects that will help to reduce the state's largest source of methane emissions.
CalBio and Land O'Lakes have launched a first-of-its-kind collaboration to support the financing, installation and management of on-farm methane digesters to generate biogas that will be used as a carbon negative transportation fuel.
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.
Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts is leading the way on conversion of food waste to energy. Ready about their new project in the Daily Breeze.
Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Announces RFP for Digester Operation - Gives BAC members Extra Points!!
BAC members Orange County Waste & Recycling and Caterpillar announce the opening of a new landfill gas project that will produce 160,000 megawatt hours per year of renewable electricity, enough to power 26,000 homes.
