Across the renewable natural gas (RNG) development chain, Marlin Natural Gas is partnering with major enviro-tech companies to develop new sources of biogas and options to get it to market. Marlin Gas Services provides flexible and diverse options for transporting renewable natural gas through our virtual pipeline solutions.

What is RNG?

Renewable natural gas (RNG), also known as biogas, is an alternative fuel made from waste. RNG offers an added environmental benefit by keeping methane from sources like landfills and livestock from leaking into the atmosphere. When these waste materials decompose naturally, they release methane and carbon dioxide, the two most prevalent greenhouse gases.

The RNG Process

The RNG process works to accelerate the natural decomposition of waste using anaerobic digestion. This breaks down organic matter and turns it into biogas by capturing the methane and carbon that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. The resulting gas is used as a reliable source of energy and offers customers a renewable option to help reduce their carbon footprint.

RNG is then transported and mixed with traditional natural gas that’s delivered by local distribution companies to end-use customers, substantially lowering the carbon footprint of the entire system while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Marlin Gas Services introduces RNG into the existing natural gas network for local distribution to homes and businesses. Through our virtual pipeline solutions and infrastructure we can deliver RNG to be used as a transportation fuel in natural gas trucks, cars and buses.

Benefits of RNG

Reduces Greenhouse Emissions

  • When captured for conversion into RNG, methane from animal waste and other biomass sources that otherwise would have entered directly into the atmosphere, is instead combusted as RNG.
  • This results in the release of greenhouse gases that are approximately 21 times less potent than methane released directly into the atmosphere.
  • The use of RNG represents the recycling of carbon that is already circulating in the environment, whereas burning a fossil fuel represents the release of new carbon emissions.

Improves Waste Management

Collecting and processing animal waste from agricultural activities prevents run-off into local waterways and reduces groundwater contamination.

Supports Rural Economic Development

As the RNG industry continues to grow, increasing production will lead to the development and deployment of new technologies, while creating new job opportunities.

Diversifies Energy Sources

Increases the domestic production of renewable non-fossil fuel energy that supplements transportation fuels.
