Dixon, CA (PR) December 9th, 2018, Freedom Motors and Stratus Environmental are pleased to announce a strategic partnership between the two enterprises to develop biogas generation technologies and solutions to mitigate carbon emissions and fight global warming.
Landfills, waste water treatment plants and agricultural waste are sources of biogas that has a large percentage of methane. Because methane is 86 times more effective than CO2 at retaining heat, many earth scientists believe that methane should be of greater concern than CO2 for its impact on global warming. Developed by Freedom Motors, the Rotapower® rotary engine can use biogas as a fuel to generate electricity at low cost and it is tolerant to common biogas contaminants. By preventing the biogas from being flared or released directly to the atmosphere the Rotapower engine can make a meaningful contribution to reducing global warming gas emissions.
