Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Webinar: Case Study of University of California Renewable Natural Gas Projects

Case Study of University of California Renewable Natural Gas Projects imageOn January 27, 2021, LMOP hosted a webinar about how the University of California (UC) is working with Archaea Energy and landfills across the country to meet its sustainability goals. UC set a goal to emit net zero greenhouse gases from its buildings and vehicle fleet by 2025, with a plan to achieve 40 percent of its natural gas from renewable sources by then. UC has both developed a landfill gas (LFG) processing plant and procured renewable natural gas (RNG) via long-term offtake contracts as part of its plan to meet the 2025 goal.  The presentations were followed by a question-and-answer session.

The presentation slides are provided below in a PDF file as well as a recording of the speakers. Please note that the recording was partially re-recorded due to audio problems on the day of the live webinar.
