OPAL Fuels celebrates opening of Sunoma RNG facility

OPAL Fuels has celebrated the ribbon-cutting ceremony of its new Sunoma Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Facility at Paloma Dairy in Arizona.

OPAL Fuels is a merger of Fortistar’s leading RNG production and renewable transport fuel distribution portfolio companies.

The new facility will produce 1.6 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE) of renewable vehicle fuel annually for the heavy-duty trucking sector – enough to fuel 10 million miles of freight. The Sunoma RNG Facility will also limit methane emissions from the dairy and carbon emissions from trucks amounting to an annual emissions reduction of 54,000 tonnes of CO2e.

“We are excited to celebrate the Sunoma project with the Van Hofwegen family,” said Adam Comora, co-CEO of OPAL Fuels. “The Sunoma dairy digester at the Paloma Dairy in Gila Bend proves there does not have to be a trade-off between economic growth and environmental responsibility.

Allan Van Hofwegen of Paloma Dairy commented: “We are thrilled that OPAL Fuels could help us grow our business and help us do our part to overcome climate change.

“As a multi-generational dairy, we want to leave behind both a business our children are proud of and a planet free from climate change’s worst impacts.”

OPAL Fuels is investing more than $900 million (€786 million) into the business with three operating projects, seven in construction, and 16 in advanced development. On completion, OPAL Fuels will dispense in excess of 150 million GGE per year, equivalent to removing more than 1.6 million tons of carbon annually.
