Renewable Natural Gas
Convert waste into energy
RNG is a carbon-neutral fuel that reduces harmful emissions and provides a renewable source of energy.
Waste can be put to work by converting it to RNG and injecting it into the natural gas network to fuel transportation and heat homes and businesses. Known for its carbon-offsetting advantage, RNG can manage waste, generate revenue and reduce harmful emissions to fight climate change.
RNG is a carbon-neutral solution that can combat climate change.
RNG can be used to fuel transportation, provide energy needs for homes and businesses and create new revenue streams and jobs for local economies.
By converting organic waste to RNG, an additional source of low-carbon energy is created. RNG by-product can also be turned into fertilizers that return valuable nutrients back into the soil.
RNG effectively lowers greenhouse gas emissions and results in a smaller carbon footprint.
RNG is fully compatible with existing natural gas infrastructure, making it easily accessible to residential and commercial customers.
Municipal organic waste to RNG
By using a closed loop approach, energy from waste is converted to RNG and added to the natural gas system.

It's time to end food waste
Almost a third of the world’s food is thrown out. If we consider greenhouse gases as countries, food waste would be the third biggest emitter in the world.
