I would be curious to see the lifecycle analysis on this. As others have said burning methane produces CO2, and methane itself is one of the worst greenhouse gasses. Perpetuating an economy that relies upon methane for fuel is not likely to be a good long term strategy. That said, I know methane from cow farts and cow turds is itself a massive methane source. This might be net positive on that issue in that at least that methane is going somewhere to do some positive work before getting converted to the less harmful CO2.

If it moves the needle as a net positive then it could be a great thing. But I’d like to see smarter long term investments in true renewables.
