RNG SOURCES

How To Generate Renewable
Natural Gas With Greengas

Together, we will generate economic and environmental
benefits from your organic wastewater streams.

OUR PROCESS

Eliminate Greenhouse Gas emissions in less than 12 months. Generate income in less than 2 years.

You want to reduce emissions and odor from your waste streams? But you don’t want to invest capital to make necessary upgrades to your waste management system.

You want to generate income from producing renewable energy? But you need to focus on your core business. GreenGas will work with you to design all elements of a gas capture system and provide you with access to long-term carbon buyers to help you generate new income streams for your operations.

The Process

5 Simple Steps

1. ASSESSMENT OF METHANE POTENTIAL

GreenGas will perform a free assessment of your waste streams to determine how much methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas, is released from your operation. GreenGas’ goal is to harvest as much methane from your waste streams as possible. This prevents methane from emitting to the atmosphere, potentially reducing your GHG reporting requirements.

2. GREENGAS DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT

GreenGas will offer sources with sufficiently high methane potential a joint development agreement. This agreement commits GreenGas to install and fund the necessary equipment to capture methane from your waste streams, convert it to renewable natural gas, and will define a payment stream to the gas source for the term of the agreement which can range from 10-20 years. The gas source is not required to incur any costs under this agreement and will be compensated for providing the feedstock to produce RNG. We strongly believe in creating new and diverse income streams to the farming communities we work in addition to improving environmental impacts.

3. METHANE CAPTURE

GreenGas will install methane capture systems. These typically consist of covered lagoons or tank-based systems. These processes facilitate the naturally occurring biodegradation of organic waste – also called anaerobic digestion. Methanogens convert organics into CH4, which along with other gases such as CO2 comprise biogas.

4. RNG PRODUCTION

Biogas in its raw form is not easily consumable as a fuel. Through further processing using gas separation equipment, methane is isolated and a highly purified gas called RNG is created. This form of gas meets the same standards as fossil natural gas and can be used interchangeably without any upgrade to pipelines or combustion equipment. RNG, however, does displace fossil natural gas and is renewable.

5. PAYMENT TO GAS SOURCE PROVIDER

GreenGas partners with leading global businesses and organizations that use RNG to displace fossil fuels and decarbonize/reduce their carbon footprint. We believe strongly in creating value for farmers and or other generators of organic waste. Our approach involves allowing gas sources to participate in the economic benefits of RNG after GreenGas has recovered its initial investment.

“Agribusiness is a vital partner in the process of carbon mitigation,” said South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. “GreenGasUSA’s partnership with McCall Farms and Duke University is an example of the win-win solutions that we can achieve for our state’s farmers and the environment when we work together.”

“Working with GreenGas has helped us become better stewards of the environment, improve our waste management operations, and generate economic value from what was previously an expense to our facility”
