The RNG Process
Organic waste materials can be captured and processed by anaerobic digestion, where microorganisms break down the organic matter to create methane-rich biogas, which is then processed and purified into pipeline-quality RNG.
The waste deposited in landfills, over time decomposes into methane rich biogas that is processed and purified and delivered into pipeline systems.
This process captures the methane and carbon that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. The resulting gas may then be used as a reliable source of energy and offers customers an important renewable option to address their carbon footprint.
RNG is then transported to seamlessly complement and mix with traditional natural gas delivered by local distribution companies to end-use customers, substantially lowering the carbon footprint of the entire system while reducing impacts of greenhouse gas emissions.
