What is Renewable Natural Gas?
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is essentially the Biomethane or Biogas that have been processed to purity standards. Biogas is a mixture of gases (mostly methane and carbon dioxide), generated by the natural breakdown of organic matter.
RNG is a storable and replenishable fuel that looks and acts like fossil pipeline-quality natural gas and is hence, fully interchangeable. It is a clean, affordable, and reliable waste-derived fuel that can be used on-site to generate power or as a fuel in industries, commercial, transport sectors and even as a feedstock in the fertiliser and chemicals industry.
Biogas is a Renewable Fuel produced by the breakdown of Organic Matter such as food scraps and animal waste generate biogas and convert it into RNG. RNG then can be injected into the fossil Natural Gas Pipeline Network and transported to the CNG Stations or to the end consumers. Similarly, wherever there is no pipeline connectivity, we will compress the RNG up to 250 bar pressure and fill into the Cascades and then transport it via vehicle to the nearest CNG stations for vehicle filling and hence called as Compressed biogas (CBG).
In this way, biogas projects capture Methane (CH4) released from organic wastes that are collected from sources such as Landfills, existing food waste, Animal manure, Industrial waste, Agriculture waste, Garbage, Wastewater treatment plants, farms, and food processing plants, and redirect it away from the environment, thereby repurposing it as a clean and green energy source.
