Accelerating Biogas Development

The United States has an enormous amount of untapped potential for processing organic waste streams to produce renewable biogas. Biogas is a mixture of carbon dioxide, methane and other trace gases. Once biogas is produced it can be a source of renewable electricity and/or heat, be further cleaned and processed to provide a source of renewable natural gas or compressed and used as an alternative transportation fuel in vehicles designed to run on natural gas.  In addition, biogas development also provides an opportunity to more effectively manage organic waste. Great Plains Institute is working with a broad set of partners to identify policy and project development opportunities to accelerate biogas development that results in energy, environment and economic benefits.
