Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is an affordable and reliable waste-derived fuel that can be used to power homes, businesses and even vehicles. RNG is created by capturing methane from existing sources of waste – such as food waste, wastewater sludge, or agricultural waste (like animal manure)—and converting it into renewable natural gas that can be used in any natural gas application.
