On the rise: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to Biogas, its markets and production and treatment technologies

August 8, 2018 |

What’s up with biogas?

The U.S. market has lagged in the development of biogas facilities because of the low cost of electricity, natural gas and vehicle fuels derived from petroleum. The passing of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 as well as the need for an MTBE replacement in gasoline has promoted a great deal of development of fuel ethanol. Incentives that resulted from the RFS in the form of payments for renewable fuels certified to the EPA and registered by number to be sold as a reward for reduction of the greenhouse gases emitted by vehicles using the renewable fuels produced and sold have provided additional economic incentive to develop alternate and renewable fuels.
