By Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, via Biomass Magazine.

A proposed bill sponsored by the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) that seeks to accelerate the production and integration of green gas into California’s natural gas supply passed out of the State Assembly’s Utilities and Energy Committee today. 

AB 3187, introduced by Assemblymember Tim Grayson (D-Concord), would help to decrease the cost of interconnecting in-state production facilities that should be developed to capture and convert methane from California’s diverted organic materials, livestock and agricultural waste, landfills and wastewater treatment facilities into renewable natural gas (RNG, biomethane).
