RNG has the same chemical makeup as natural gas, CH4, but it isn’t a fossil fuel. RNG is produced from purifying biogas, which can be captured when organic matter decomposes using technologies like an anaerobic digester. What kind of facilities do you think uses anaerobic digesters? I hope you said farms! How about landfills? This kind of technology can be used in both industries to produce renewable natural gas.

RNG can be produced at landfills from:

• agricultural waste like leftover crops and animal waste

• municipal organic waste

• food processing organic waste

• biosolids from wastewater treatment plants
