Proven track record
As one of the industry’s earliest and most active participants, we pioneered the biogas derived CNG and LNG fuels under both the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) programs. We were the first biogas marketer to be approved to generate Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) from managed biogas projects and were the first to receive approval for a biogas specific Carbon Intensity Pathway under the LCFS. To date, we have transported over 8 million MMBtu of biogas and represent 20% of the cellulosic RIN market.

- Renewable Fuel Credits (RINs)
- Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)
- Renewable Energy: Electric & Thermal
Not only does Biomethane (renewable natural gas or RNG) replace fossil fuels with renewable fuels, but the capture of fugitive methane from landfills, wastewater, manure, and other sources also prevents methane from leaking into the atmosphere. Methane is one of the most potent GHGs, so its capture and management are key to climate goals.
Biomethane is a convenient and flexible form of renewable energy because it is storable and dispatchable. RNG can replace fossil fuel in any natural gas application, including powering vehicles, generating power, and heating homes.
