The Power of Waste: Renewable Natural Gas as a Low-Carbon Vehicle Fuel for Long Island

The Power of Waste workshop, co-hosted by Energy Vision, Long Island Clean Cities Coalition and the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University, will introduce renewable natural gas (RNG) as a new frontier for transportation.  New York State is poised to take the lead toward a cleaner, economical, and locally-sourced energy future.  The use of locally-produced RNG will reduce greenhouse gases, foster the development of clean energy projects in-state, and incentivize the responsible handling of waste.

The Power of Waste will bring together municipal leaders, environmental professionals, policymakers, project developers, waste managers and agricultural professionals to strategize ways to bring projects to market and integrate RNG into the greenhouse gas reduction strategies of government and industry. The workshop will also educate attendees on the logistics and physical components of an RNG project.

Workshop topics will include:

  • The Big Value Proposition in Turning Waste into Vehicle Fuel
  • RNG Project Case Studies
  • The Current RNG Landscape and Potential for Long Island
  • Technical information on the production, refining and use of RNG
  • Funding opportunities at the state level
  • The EPA's Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2)
