We have a problem with methane. It’s a highly potent greenhouse gas – much more potent than carbon dioxide, the gas we’re falling all over ourselves trying to eliminate from the transportation waste stream.
The Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board and others peg methane released by the biological decomposition of organic materials at 30 to 60 times more potent than CO2 when vented to atmosphere.
One solution is using methane to fuel vehicles. Using it as fuel also replaces other carbon-based fuels that produce their own share of hydrocarbon emissions. It’s renewable, and it’s plentiful.
