Produced for Southern California Gas Company

Webinar Description:

The Southern California Gas Company hosted this one-hour webinar to discuss technology and implementation options for low-carbon, near-zero tailpipe emission refuse fleets.

Topics covered included:

  • Insight from a refuse fleet that has procured renewable fuel, produced renewable fuel from organic waste, and implemented a near-zero-emission engine project (“RNG+NZE”) to achieve immediate reductions of >60% for greenhouse gases and >90% for NOx.
  • How the combination of ultra-low NOx natural gas engines and renewable natural gas technologies can help meet state emission targets. These breakthrough developments offer the lowest overall emission profile for refuse among all commercially available advanced engine technologies.
  • Resources available to analyze the cost and emission benefits of RNG+NZE for your refuse operations.
