Synthetic Natural Gas

The Great Plains Synfuels Plant (GPSP) in Beulah, North Dakota has been in operation producing synthetic natural gas from lignite coal for 25 years.  Each day the Synfuels Plant converts approximately 18,000 tons of lignite coal into an average 145 million cubic feet of synthetic natural gas for home heating and electricity generation at a profit.  Duplicating such a plant, locating them near natural gas transmission pipelines and having them fed biocarbon by a widely dispersed number of biomass to biocarbon plants would allow for the production of large quantities of natural gas from renewable, clean, carbon neutral sources.
