Renewable natural gas

Join us, and stop waste from going to waste

When bacteria break down organic waste from sources such as landfill sites, agriculture waste and wastewater from treatment facilities, biogas is created. Working with our suppliers, we’re capturing and purifying it to provide you with renewable natural gas, a locally produced, carbon neutral energy source.

Estimated emissions avoided are equal to 0.0498 tonnes CO2e per gigajoule of natural gas. The estimated number of cars off the road is based on the annual emissions from an average car using the calculator at http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/energy-resources/calculator.html.
