Clean Methane Systems and EIP Ventures Collaborate to Develop More
than 10 Million Gallons of Renewable Fuel from Organic Waste Streams in Oregon
Upgrading raw biogas will improve air quality and displace fossil fuels
Tualatin, OR, April 2, 2019 – Clean Methane Systems LLC and EIP Ventures, LLC announced a joint venture named “EcoRNG” to develop more than 10 million gallons of renewable fuels from waste streams at landfills, waste water treatment facilities and dairies throughout Oregon.
EcoRNG’s plan is to replace millions of gallons of diesel with renewable natural gas generated from existing waste streams. By capturing harmful waste gases and converting them into pipeline-quality renewable natural gas, EcoRNG will lessen dependence on fossil fuels, reduce emissions and demonstrate a productive use of waste stream bi-products.
Clean Methane Systems LLC, and its acquired operations, has provided technological solutions to the biogas industry for more than 20 years. EIP Ventures, LLC is a strategic advisor, developer and asset manager of cutting edge, socially conscious water and renewable energy projects.
“This joint venture is an innovative solution that requires cooperation among regulators, consumers, utilities and producers,” says Tim Robinson, president of Clean Methane Systems. “The collaboration will provide meaningful environmental and economic benefits to our region. We aim to produce better, healthier, and locally produced energy and fueling options.”
The EcoRNG aggregation project in Oregon includes installing biogas upgrade and conditioning equipment at existing production facilities, converting the raw biogas into pipeline-quality RNG, transporting it to a central injection site and marketing the gas for use as environmentally friendly vehicle fuel.
