Under the corporate banner of Forester University, MSW Management is pleased to begin its webinar offerings with Greening the Fleet with Biogas, an exploration of the opportunities, technology, and potential savings of using biogas to fuel fleets of all sizes, presented by Senior Project Engineer Mark J. Torresani, P.E., of Cornerstone Environmental Group LLC. Through discussion of real-world application and lessons learned from the implementation and operation of the landfill-gas-to-BioCNG system located at the Rodefeld Landfill near Madison, WI, this webinar will cover:
* Technical and financial issues associated with converting and using biogas as a vehicle fuel in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG)
* Technical challenges and methods of removing contaminants from biogas to meet engine manufacturers’ specifications and fuel performance
* Fundamentals of selecting equipment for treating biogas, fueling vehicles and selecting vehicles
* Keys to integrating system components
This webinar is intended to offer attendees a better understanding of the potential to develop biogas-to-vehicle fueling projects, as well as the benefits and challenges of using biogas as a vehicle fuel.
With gas on the rise, environment on the mind, and budgets on the chopping block, can you fuel and green the fleet? According to biogas expert Mark J. Torresani, P.E., yes…and cost effectively.
Biogas offers an alternative to gasoline, diesel vehicle fuel, and natural gas that’s both environmentally beneficial and cost effective for fleets of all sizes. Thanks to innovation in conversion methods, an expansion of natural gas vehicles, and a continued price increase in oil-based vehicle fuels, projects using biogas-based fuel-to-power vehicles are now becoming a reality throughout the world for municipalities and organizations. Available for production from a variety of sources (e.g., wastewater treatment plants, and industrial, foodwaste, and agricultural waste digesters), biogas-to-fuel offers measurable economic benefits, sustainable fuel source product opportunities, necessary emissions requirements compliance, and improved air quality.
Webinar attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
* How biogas can be used as a vehicle fuel
* Benefits of using biogas as a vehicle fuel
* Comparisons of biogas, natural gas, gasoline, and diesel as a vehicle fuel
* Components needed for a successful biogas-to-vehicle fuel project
