RNG Site Overview



Renewable natural gas (RNG) is the product of capturing and processing methane from waste and biodegradable sources. RNG can be sourced from wastewater treatment, refuse, and farm and agricultural waste. RNG represents a growing percentage of natural gas in some parts of the United States.

In 2019, APGA adopted a resolution to support the advancement of RNG due to both increasing natural gas supply while reducing emissions. View APGA Policy Resolutions

RNG can help reduce emissions to a net negative, while providing pipeline quality natural gas to utilities, and it has the potential to equal the other benefits of traditional natural gas. RNG growth provides economic development and infrastructure opportunities for publicly-owned gas systems. RNG can also be used for transportation and power generation applications.
