Biogas RNG outpacing even solar in growth potential

Expect to hear lots more about renewable natural gas (RNG) or biomethane, the versatile biobased fuel that’s fully interchangeable with fossil-fuel natural gas. American Biogas Council Executive Director Patrick Serfass says turning the organic wastes from food production, livestock manure, wastewater treatment plants, and municipal solid waste into high-energy, climate-positive biogas is a profitable first step. The benefits multiply in the second stage – turning biogas into RNG by cleaning the biogas so that it can be pumped into the nation’s natural gas pipelines for distribution.
