Honda Indy Grand Prix shines public spotlight on biogas
Two cars in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama were sponsored by the American Biogas Council, a breakthrough to mainstream America for the biogas industry.
IndyCars driven by Colton Herta (Harding Steinbrenner Racing) and Patricio O’Ward (Carlin Motorsport) were the parties sponsored by the biogas association.
“If we can get America to embrace the benefits of biogas as fast as Colton and Patricio drive, we all win,” said Patrick Serfass, executive director of trade association the American Biogas Council. “When you recycle material like food scraps and agricultural waste in a biogas system, you naturally produce biogas, which is a renewable energy, and digestate, which is a nutrient rich soil amendment that builds healthy soils.
“We are thrilled to have the support of Harding Steinbrenner Racing, Carlin Motorsport and biogas companies like GESS International.”
The cars were also sponsored by GESS International, one of the fastest growing biogas companies in the US.
“Now is perfect timing for GESS International to be working with the fastest driver and growing team of Colton Herta and Harding Steinbrenner Racing and Patricio O’Ward who recently won the 2018 Indy Lights Championship,” added Shaun Lee, GESS International.
“Coming off the win at COTA, we’re ready for more edge-of-your-seat racing and connecting IndyCar fans to the benefits of renewable fuels.”
