First Environment support BlueSource with an engineering review of the City of Riverview’s recovery and conversion of biogas produced from the Riverview Land Preserve Landfill into transportation fuel. The biogas is treated onsite at the landfill and converted into Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for use in trucks and buses as transportation fuel. The project qualifies to earn tradable Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) under the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) program.
First Environment performed the engineering review services required under RFS2 in order to register the activity with EPA and qualify to generate the tradable RINs associated with fuel production and use as transportation fuel.
First Environment performed the required site inspection visits and review of technical and contractual documentation pertinent to project activities. We submitted an Engineering Review Report to EPA to validate the project’s application for registration.
Once approved, the project will be able to earn 360,000 RINs per year and avoid the use of 200,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually, which is the equivalent of approximately 2,200 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
