Description:

Sysgaz has developed a technology that transforms methane gas collected from landfills into renewable liquefied natural gas (RLNG). This RLNG could become an important source of energy for the transportation sector in the near term. Sysgaz’s unique approach integrates three technologies into a single integrated process. These include a proprietary landfill gas capture system, an innovative gas scrubbing system and a compact and energy efficient cryogenic system which, when combined, produce the liquefied renewable natural gas. When compared to diesel, the use of RLNG could enable a 90% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions which is superior to LNG which itself reduces emissions by 25%. This project will validate both the integrated process and the quality of the RLNG, which will be used to fuel Class 8 trucks to demonstrate overall benefits to heavy transport operators.
