GTI’s research projects, analysis, and expertise are focused on overcoming the technological issues surrounding the expanded production and use renewable natural gas (RNG). Our experts are familiar with regulations and incentives driving the production, sale, and use of RNG.
GTI is designing gasification and methanation plants for large-scale production of RNG from forest and agricultural wastes. Full life cycle assessments are being documented for the production of this storable form of renewable energy. The work provides technical and economic bases for conversion or diversification of biopower and forest products plants into RNG producers.
GTI led a team of technology providers and engineering experts to perform a site-specific engineering study at a Stockton, California Biomass power facility. The report quantified the costs to transform the site into a renewable natural gas (RNG) production facility and produce up to 3 BCF/year of RNG from woody biomass. The report will provide both an economic and an environmental basis for future commitments to deploy large-scale RNG production in California and elsewhere. Support is being provided by a group of West Coast utilities, California public agencies, and team members including ANDRITZ, Haldor Topsoe, and Black & Veatch.
