ANGI Recognized for Biogas to CNG Vehicle Fuel Project

Thu, Jan 26th, 2012

ANGI Energy Systems, LLC announced that it is part of a team that received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 2011 Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) Project of the Year Award for the Rodefeld Landfill BioCNG Vehicle Fuel Project in Dane County, WI. Each year, the EPA recognizes the latest accomplishments of landfill methane partners who have reduced emissions of methane and created renewable energy. The LMOP acknowledges its Partners for excellence in innovation and creativity, success in promoting project development, and achieving environmental and economic benefits. The award was presented during the 15th Annual LMOP Partner and Project of the Year Awards ceremony on January 18, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. The project partners are Dane County Solid Waste Department, Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC, ANGI Energy Systems, LLC, Unison Solutions, LLC, and Madison Area Technical College. Together they implemented the BioCNG system, enabling Dane County to fuel converted parks and public works trucks with biomethane, with the potential to expand to supply fuel to waste trucks and other County vehicles. The patent-pending biogas conditioning system economically produces bio-gas-based fuel that is a fraction of the cost of gasoline or diesel.

The BioCNG system is currently operating at a capacity of 100 gallons of gasoline equivalent (GGE) per day, but the system is now being upgraded to operate at a capacity of 250 GGE. The landfill's BioCNG vehicle fueling station operates in conjunction with an existing landfill gas electrical generation system.

This change also benefits the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that CNG reduces carbon monoxide by 90 percent, ground-level ozone emissions by 75 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent.

"ANGI is happy to be a member of this award winning team. The BioCNG process scales well. The ROI is known and can be projected into the future. From our perspective, BioCNG is the best use of biogas," said John Grimmer, CEO of ANGI Energy Systems.

ANGI Energy Systems was responsible fo the CNG fueling station refurbishment, Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC contributed design, permitting and site implementation services, Unison Solutions, LLC provided fabrication of the gas conditioning system and the Madison Area Technical College donated a trailer-mounted CNG fueling station.
