Earlier this month we explored how Renewable Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) is sourced and produced. RLNG is a fuel that can be used to power vehicles instead of conventional gasoline or diesel, but can it replace these conventional fuel solutions? At this point, the best candidates for using RLNG are medium-duty and heavy-duty fleet vehicles,… Read More.
Renewable Liquefied Natural Gas, or RLNG, is hitting the news radar as a potential solution for providing a renewable fuel source for vehicles on the road. But what is RLNG and is this really a possibility? How is Conventional Liquefied Natural Gas produced? Before we get to RLNG, lets take a look at conventional liquefied… Read More.
At Rogue Valley Clean Cities Coalition, we’re always interested in new ways scientists are learning to create renewable energy. Giant Micanthus is a plant that can grow to 12 or more feet in height every year, resembles bamboo, and according to the US Department of Energy, can produce fifteen times as much ethanol as other… Read More.
Know any kids who are interested in science? At Rogue Valley Clean Cities Coalition, we want to provide you with educational information for your youngsters or to pass along to any teachers you may know! Here is an easy Q&A you can share with a young, budding scientist to help him or her learn more… Read More.
What is Renewable Natural Gas? Renewable natural gas (RNG), or biomethane, is a type of biofuel made from methane produced by decomposing organic material (“biomass”) in oxygen-free (“anaerobic”) conditions. Essentially, gas from the material is captured, and other matter such as water, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide are removed to purify the natural gas to… Read More.
