Bulk transportation of renewable natural gas (RNG) by truck, or a virtual pipeline, is a growing industry in the U.S. While some landfill owners are setting up virtual pipelines to fuel their fleets, a few are tapping into these systems to get gas into utility pipelines. It’s an expensive endeavor but may be worth it, especially for remote landfills wanting to capitalize on renewable credits. Some utilities find it’s opening opportunities for them, too.
Hexagon Lincoln in Nebraska manufactures mobile pipeline gas transportation modules, delivering about 500 of them throughout North America.
