WATCH local news coverage of Mainspring Energy’s linear generator, which is converting landfill methane to renewable electricity in Yolo County. Using its non-combustion technology, Mainspring can reduce methane emissions and provide renewable electricity.
According to climate scientists around the world, cutting methane and other Short-Lived Climate Pollutants is the most urgent step we can take to address climate change because it begins to benefit the climate right away. Steps to reduce fossil fuel burning, on the other hand, take decades to begin to benefit the climate. Cutting methane and other SLCP emissions buys us time until fossil fuel reductions begin to benefit the climate. SLCP reductions also benefit public health since SLCPs are also powerful air pollutants.
