WASHINGTON, April 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend, the biogas industry breaks through to mainstream America on the IndyCars driven by Colton Herta with Harding Steinbrenner racing and Patricio O'Ward with Carlin Motorsport at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Producing and using biogas replaces conventional fuels such as natural gas on a one to one basis, lowers carbon emissions, promotes healthy soil and clean water, and increases recycling.
"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 the American Biogas Council, the trade association that represents the entire biogas industry in the US. "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 two cars will feature badging for the American Biogas Council and GESS International, one of the largest and 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," said Shaun Lee of 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."
