CNG FROM RENEWABLE BIOMETHANE  

The “next big thing” in renewable transportation energy comes from an unexpected place: the waste created by human activity on our planet. We can now take organic matter from landfills, animal waste, and sewage plants, speed up its inevitable decaying process through anaerobic digestion, capture the biogas created in the process, and upgrade it into biomethane (which contains 96% pure methane after scrubbing out other elements). Chemically, biomethane is undistinguishable from methane from fossil fuels. However, there is one big difference: biomethane is completely renewable, while fossilized methane is not it makes perfect sense to convert your fleet from diesel fuel to CNG (compressed natural gas) with biomethane for the following reasons:

  1. CNG from Biomethane is 100% Renewable. Diesel is a non-renewable fossil fuel. Biomethane from CNG differs from “traditional” natural gas because it is completely renewable, whereas natural gas comes from limited resources (such as oil and coal).
  2. CNG from Biomethane Produces Significantly Less Pollution and Greenhouse Gases Than Diesel: Biomethane creates far less nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) in the combustion process compared to diesel and even petrol. Well-to-wheels diesel emissions are 34% higher than biomethane emissions over the total life cycle.
  3. CNG Provides Up to 75% Reduction in Fuel Cost Compared to Diesel: Fleet operators can reduce their fuel costs by up 75% as soon as they switch over to CNG. Even with the extra CAPEX cost of CNG, the payback is often less than 2 years.
  4. CNG Even Stacks Up Favorably Against All Electric Vehicles: CNG from biomethane is better for the environment in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, since only 20% of electricity is currently generated from renewable sources.

COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS (CNG) SYSTEMS FOR HIGH PRESSURE APPLICATIONS UP TO 5000 PSIG

BAUER offers a full line of reciprocating piston compressor systems that are capable of compressing the conditioned biogas up to 5000 PSIG final pressure which is the pressure required for use in CNG vehicles. BAUER has been producing CNG systems for over 35 years and is considered the golden standard in the CNG Industry.

BIOGAS RECOVERY AND UPGRADING SOLUTIONS

BAUER GRU

BAUER GRU®

COMPLETE SOLUTIONS FOR ON-SITE BIOGAS RECOVERY AND UPGRADING

Generating biomethane from the biogas emitted from landfills, dairies/cattle feedlots and wastewater facilities through anaerobic fermentation not only eliminates methane emissions into the atmosphere but can also be a source of additional revenue and profit for the operator by:

  • Selling the gas to a utility through pipeling injection
  • Offsetting costs associated with purchasing fuel for vehicles by producing their own fuel (CNG)
  • Producing their own electricity through co-generation
