Opal Invests In RNG Facility

Read Time: 1 min

The RNG fuel developer OPAL Fuels has invested in Bio Town Biogas, one of the most environmentally friendly renewable natural gas production facilities in the US.

The centerpiece of the project will be a large-scale dairy digester that will produce about 1,000 MMBTUs of fuel per day. This fuel will be cheaper than diesel and have one of the lowest carbon intensity scores in the industry.

The project will provide the equivalent of 28.5 million gallons of fuel per year with net zero emissions to OPAL Fuels fleet customers – enough fuel to allow roughly 2,400 heavy-duty trucks to achieve carbon neutral emissions in their operations. This project will keep over 43,000 tons of CO2e emissions out of the atmosphere each year, while helping trucking companies save about $5.8m per year in fuel costs compared to diesel.

The scale of this project empowers the RNG it produces to achieve an ultra-low carbon intensity score. The project achieves such scale by not only converting biogas to electricity from cattle manure at the project’s host site, but by also trucking in manure from local dairy farms to convert to RNG. OPAL Fuels then distributes the fuel through its network of over 140 service stations, which together operate as TruStar Energy.
