An international leader in developing technology to make clean burning, renewable second-generation biofuels was looking to team up with a leading provider of waste disposal and recycling services to recycle landfill gases into cost-effective compressed natural gases (CNG) and bring them to the energy and transportation markets. CNG is an eco-friendly alternative to Diesel Fuel, LPG and Gasoline . Made by compressing natural gas or landfill gases (methane) down to less than 1% of its volume, CNG fuel is safer than other fuels such as gasoline or diesel because it is non-toxic and does not contaminate ground water. The use of CNG is extremely good for the environment as it is one of the cleanest burning fuels available. The use of CNG reduces carbon monoxide emissions 90 to 97 percent.
PLG’s team of experts was engaged to help the client review and determine the most cost-effective path forward to safely transport CNG to market. The client’s end goals of the engagement were to understand and analyze private fleet versus common carrier transport options. In addition, they were seeking PLG experts to determine the optimal equipment configuration as well as fleet size and transit times to reduce dwell times and maximize overall throughput.
