Arthur Deakin, Director of Energy at AMI, provides a comprehensive exploration of the opportunities for renewable natural gas (RNG) in Latin America. His article in Latinvex delves into the primary sources of RNG and their carbon intensity levels, shedding light on how Latin America is responding to these emerging technologies. Deakin highlights:
Landfill gas is the most common source of RNG and is also the cheapest and easiest to handle. However, it also has the highest carbon intensity because methane continues to be emitted during the capture of biogas. Although large landfills are mostly in place in Latin America, less than 1% of them have a system in place to capture the gas and turn it into a source of energy. Companies such as Veolia, ZEG/Vibra, Orizon and Ecometano are leading this space in Brazil. In Mexico, there were reports that Engie was developing an RNG pilot plant in Durango, but the project is currently on hold as they analyze its feasibility.
