PR Newswire - Wed Jul 20, 10:25AM CDT

Kore's modular system diverts organic waste from California landfills and converts it into carbon negative hydrogen and renewable natural gas (RNG)

LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced that Kore Infrastructure has successfully begun testing and demonstrating its carbon-negative, waste-to-energy modular system at the utility's Los Angeles facility. The innovative technology is designed to divert organic waste from California landfills and convert it into carbon-negative hydrogen and renewable natural gas (RNG). These clean fuels could be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and hard-to-electrify sectors, including heavy-duty transportation. SoCalGas is already demonstrating how renewable hydrogen made from RNG could fuel a public transportation fleet. Testing of the Kore Infrastructure technology can provide key insights into efficiency and operating costs, as well as determining the cost-effectiveness of its deployment at scale. SoCalGas contributed $1.5 million to the demonstration project, which has also received funding from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD).
