Information about methane

  • Methane gas can designate both biogas and natural gas.
  • Both have a high methane content.
  • Natural gas is a fossil dating from 40 to 500 million years, extracted using deep wells in the Earth's crust.
  • Biogas is similar to natural gas, but it's a renewable gas from the decomposition of organic matter by bacteria in an anaerobic environment. One can produce it with waste and other organic matter.
  • When a vehicle runs on biogas, carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by up to 70% compared to diesel.
