Research promotes ‘doubly green’ renewable energy captured from bio-waste

According to a researcher, cities around the United States could use their own biowaste from food scraps or manure to produce renewable energy for vehicles.

The proposed operation uses renewable natural gas (RNG) from biowaste and renewable hydrogen (RH2) from surplus electricity generated by solar or wind energy as a vehicle fuel for onboard transportation.

The fuel would be doubly-green in terms of environmental impact because it is produced from green energy technologies – RNG from biowaste and RH2 from wind and solar to enrich natural gas.
