About the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas

The RNG Coalition is the non-profit trade association representing over 170 companies, municipalities, universities and organizations dedicated to the advancement of RNG, including as an ultra-clean, domestically-produced, renewable fuel in North America. The RNG industry captures methane and other gases emitted from organic waste streams – such as those from landfills, wastewater treatment plants, livestock and agricultural digesters, and commercial food waste facilities – and converts the biogas into RNG.  RNG is fully fungible with conventional natural gas, and is used as a direct substitute in commercial, industrial and residential natural gas applications.
