The article focuses on the benefits of the alternative production of renewable natural gases. It says that renewable gas production using fossil fuels and biomass resources, helps in the problems on waste disposal and greenhouse gas emissions. It mentions the Technology and Market Assessment Forum wherein presenter Donald Chabazpour encourages further development for renewable gas sources. Chabazpour adds that renewable gas helps in economic growth, job creation, and waste disposal reduction.
