Developing Biomethane Energy Resources for Renewable Fuel
The potential for biomethane as fuel for fleet vehicles has never been greater. Through our subsidiary Clean Energy Renewable Fuels (CERF), we have developed and are currently operating processing facilities at two U.S. landfills. These facilities produce Redeem, a commercial biomethane fuel that’s far cleaner than diesel with regards to greenhouse gas emissions. Redeem is produced at our facilities in Dallas, Texas, and Canton, Michigan and delivered into the nation’s gas pipeline network, displacing conventional natural gas.

The McCommas Bluff landfill in Dallas, the third largest landfill gas operation in the United States, opened in 1975 and is scheduled to close in 2042. It is estimated that pipeline‐quality biomethane gas will continue to be produced for approximately 30 years after the landfill closes. Initially, the facility’s daily output was approximately 36,000 gasoline gallon equivalents, processed from 9.4 million cubic feet of landfill gas. We have since increased this capacity to approximately 14.9 million cubic feet per day. Further improvements should ultimately enable the daily production of approximately 60,000 gasoline gallon equivalents of pipeline-quality biomethane.

In 2013, CERF began producing biomethane from the Sauk Trail Hills Landfill site in Canton, Michigan. Our newest landfill gas processing facility features a high‐BTU design, which produces renewable natural gas for injection into the natural gas pipeline system. This renewable natural gas is a source of Redeem and used by natural gas fleets.
 


The potential for expansion makes landfill gas processing plants an attractive option for our fleet customers. Increasing a plant's production capacity, a task already achieved in Dallas, will support additional sales of Redeem fuel. Using our existing transport infrastructure, Clean Energy can deliver biomethane from McCommas Bluff, and other production sites, to our national network of CNG and LNG fueling stations. Once there, Redeem will be made ready to fuel fleets on the road.

Looking ahead to the future, we at CERF are actively pursuing additional opportunities to develop biomethane production sites at landfills across the United States. In addition, we are seeking to acquire biomethane for sale as a vehicle fuel to our customers.
