Across the renewable natural gas (RNG) development chain, Marlin Natural Gas is partnering with major enviro-tech companies to develop new sources of biogas and options to get it to market. Marlin Gas Services provides flexible and diverse options for transporting renewable natural gas through our virtual pipeline solutions.

What is RNG

RNG is produced from waste. RNG is an ultra-clean and low-carbon natural gas alternative, referred to as biomethane.  Biomethane is purified or upgraded biogas. Biogas is made from the decomposition of organic material. This organic material can be any biological material.

Biogas has an additional benefit when created from waste material – food, yard and livestock manure; wastewater treatment plants; and landfill gas. When these waste materials decompose naturally, they produce biogas, releasing methane and carbon dioxide, the two most prevalent greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

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.

Marlin Gas Services introduces RNG into the existing natural gas network for local distribution to homes and businesses. Through our virtual pipeline solutions and infrastructure we can deliver RNG to be used as a transportation fuel in natural gas trucks, cars and buses.

Benefits of RNG

Reduces Greenhouse Emissions

  • When captured for conversion into RNG, methane from animal waste and other biomass sources that otherwise would have entered directly into the atmosphere, is instead combusted as RNG.
  • This results in the release of greenhouse gases that are approximately 21 times less potent than methane released directly into the atmosphere.
  • The use of RNG represents the recycling of carbon that is already circulating in the environment, whereas burning a fossil fuel represents the release of new carbon emissions.

Improves Waste Management

Collecting and processing animal waste from agricultural activities prevents run-off into local waterways and reduces groundwater contamination.

Supports Rural Economic Development

As the RNG industry continues to grow, increasing production will lead to the development and deployment of new technologies, while creating new job opportunities.

Diversifies Energy Sources

Increases the domestic production of renewable non-fossil fuel energy that supplements transportation fuels.
