Converting Biogas into CNG for Alternative Vehicle Fuels

Converting Biogas into CNG for Alternative Vehicle Fuels

New technology is being developed in response to a growing interest in lower-cost vehicle fuel alternatives. One example is the patent-pending BioCNG biogas conditioning system invented by Cornerstone, which economically converts methane produced from the decomposition of organic waste materials—or “biogas”—into a renewable natural gas (RNG) suitable for use in
