Renewable Natural Gas

87110435

We realized that we could take what was considered useless and turn it into something with a purpose.

By working with farmers throughout the United States, we started to create renewable natural gas. This carbon-negative source of power was consciously developed with nature and the world around us in mind.

Organic waste has evolved into a useful resource to heat our water, power our homes, and most importantly, lower greenhouse emissions and protect our planet.

How Renewable Natural Gas is Made

Renewable natural gas (RNG) is natural gas produced from organic waste materials like food waste and animal and plant-based materials. The major sources of RNG are landfills, animal manure, and solid waste extracted during wastewater treatment. The gas is considered to be “renewable” because it is created by waste that is continuously produced, and is naturally occurring as part of the decomposition process. Anaerobic digestion technology captures raw biogas, cleans, upgrades, and compresses it into RNG.

Renewable Natural Gas is a Carbon Negative Fuel

Throughout its life cycle, renewable natural gas offers myriad climate benefits when compared to traditionally captured gas and other fuels, drastically reducing the greenhouse gasses (GHGs) associated with agriculture and wastewater treatments. During the anaerobic digestion process, methane is captured as biogas and converted, rather than being released directly into the atmosphere. When used in vehicles, natural gas emits 6% to 11% lower levels of GHGs than gasoline throughout the fuel life cycle. Research shows that when all climate benefits are considered together, RNG from dairy manure can reduce GHG emissions up to 400% when it is used to replace traditional vehicle fuels.

Our Projects

Clean air, healthy soil, and new products. That’s what our RNG efforts are all about. By using organic waste like food and manure we convert “waste” into biogas, biofertilizers, compost, electricity, and reusable water.

All this is possible by preventing the release of one of the most potent greenhouse gasses, methane, into the environment. We take methane out of the equation and turn it into something beneficial and useful.
