New Opportunities to Convert Biomass “Waste” to Renewable Methane and Green Hydrogen

In partnership with:

Although most renewable gases are currently produced through anaerobic digestion, several innovative developers are working to deploy gasification and pyrolysis pathways to commercially viable energy production. These technologies allow for the conversion of dense, low-moisture organic material into valuable renewable gas and biochar, creating new opportunities to manage forests, agricultural waste and other hard-to-handle organic feedstocks.

Watch this 75-minute Renewable Gas 360 webinar recording to hear industry leaders discuss:

  • How gasification and pyrolysis technologies work and why they are important tools to advance climate protection, air quality improvement and clean energy goals
  • How these technologies can be used to promote sustainable management of woodlands, farming and municipal solid waste
  • The status of groundbreaking projects, and how state and local policies can help accelerate the deployment of these important renewable energy technologies



Renewable Gas 360The Renewable Gas 360 webinar series will provide continuous curriculum on the critical role renewable gases—renewable hydrogen, methane, propane and syngas—can play in helping states reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.

The webinar series is hosted by SoCalGas, Propane Education & Research Council, and Pacific Gas & Electric. Sponsors include Anaergia, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Bloom Energy, BP, California Natural Gas Vehicle Partnership, CR&R, Fuel Cell Energy, GTI, Ingevity, Meridiam, NW Natural, Shell, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Southwest Gas, and SunGas Renewables.

The webinar series is co-produced by ACT News, GNA, and the Bioenergy Association of California. Endorsing organizations include Advanced Power & Energy Program at UC Irvine, American Biogas Council, California Fuel Cell Partnership, California Hydrogen Business Council, California Stationary Fuel Cell Collaborative, Climate Resolve, the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, Energy Vision, Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association, and Green Hydrogen Coalition.
