Building, Owning, and Operating
Renewable Natural Gas Plants
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is a net negative form of energy, which is positive for the environment. Since RNG is indistinguishable from conventional natural gas and can be used without any modification to end-user equipment or gas transmission systems, the growth potential for RNG in North America is essentially equal to the total amount of natural gas demand.
RNG comes from the anaerobic decomposition of garbage, sewage, farm waste, food waste or other organic waste streams. Capturing, processing, and injecting RNG into natural gas pipelines is important to prevent leakage of methane into the atmosphere from decomposing waste. Methane contributes to atmospheric warming considerably more than carbon dioxide (CO2), and is regulated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). By using Pine Creek RNG, Landfill owners and operators, as well as regulated waste producers, can generate green energy while mitigating their regulatory risks and managing their EPA compliance requirements.
Pine Creek RNG builds, owns, and operates landfill methane capture plants as well as other commercially viable waste-to-energy infrastructure facilities.
Commercial and Industrial companies can purchase RNG to offset their carbon footprint. Historically, utility-type carbon offsets were only available through the purchase of renewable electricity from solar, wind, or hydropower sources.
