CR&R pathway for biogas from anaerobic digestion of inexperienced waste to CNG has LCFS CI of simply above zero

CR&R Included / California Renewable Energy LLC (CR&R) has submitted a California LCFS Tier 2 software for its biomethane from anaerobic digestion of inexperienced waste to CNG pathway, with a requested carbon depth (CI) of zero.34 gCO2e/MJ. The CR&R facility produces biomethane from an natural waste anaerobic digester (AD) facility in Perris, California that's co-located with CR&R’s materials restoration facility and switch station. The power receives pre-separated inexperienced waste from households and business turbines, and sends it to an anaerobic digestion unit to provide uncooked biogas. The uncooked biogas is cleaned up in an onsite upgrading facility the place it's upgraded to Rule 301 pipeline high quality biomethane. The upgraded biomethane is injected into the SoCalGas pipeline and this gasoline is ultimately compressed and disbursed as CNG. The power additionally transports digestate and compost utilizing heavy-duty CNG vehicles. Though the enter feedstock consists of restricted meals scraps ( The CI worth is predicated on life cycle evaluation carried out utilizing a modified model of the Excessive Solids Anaerobic Digestion (HSAD) calculator underneath the CA-GREET Tier 2 methodology as described within the Life Cycle Evaluation (LCA) Report. ARB workers has reviewed the CR&R software and has replicated, utilizing the modified model of the HSAD calculator, the CI worth calculated by CR&R. On the premise of those findings, CARB workers recommends that the CR&R software for the LCFS pathway be provisionally licensed, topic to particular working situations.
