ABSTRACT
The article reports on the emergence of biomethane as a viable renewable alternative to fossil fuels. The fundamental production efficiencies of biomethane make it competitive with other fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol according to the newsletter "Fleets & Fuels." Biomethane is made from waste coming from animals, crops and municipal sewage. The fuel can be processed easily into compressed natural gas (CNG).
