Powering a Sustainable Future

RNG is produced by processing and cleaning biogas, which is high in methane, from waste streams to create pipeline-quality gas that is interchangeable with traditional natural gas. The impact on the environment of methane is greater than that of carbon dioxide, so reducing methane emissions from waste streams yields a net life-cycle greenhouse gas reduction when that methane is combusted instead of being emitted to the atmosphere or flared. The demand for renewable energy sources is increasing, leading to the evaluation of the opportunity to integrate RNG into the fuel supply. Using RNG helps to divert waste streams, encourages local development, and adds sources of supply. There are also emissions benefits when the RNG is produced rather than flaring biogas. There are over 17,000 potential RNG sites in the US with the capacity to generate 8-12 million tons of methane equivalents annually. This is equal to the energy demand from 3 million homes or the equivalent of 2.5 billion gasoline gallons. 

With 2G CHP, you can supplement the benefits of RNG even further:

  • Improve site efficiencies by using the produced heat for the digester
  • Using 2G CHP for heat and energy can offset site load
  • Earn extra LCFS credits - adding CHP is an additional opportunity for savings
  • Offset utility costs
  • Sustainability
  • Reliability
