Welcome to RNG 101

The Home for Everything RNG

 

RNG is Renewable Natural Gas.

RNG Plant Site at Fair Oaks Farms

ampCNG and amprenew are in partnership with Fair Oaks Farms, one of the largest dairy farms nationwide, to produce RNG. We transform manure from 15,000 cows into methane via an on-site anaerobic digester and we use that gas to fuel CNG trucks.

We can provide RCNG at any of our 19 ultra high performance heavy duty CNG stations. And together, we can make the world a greener place.

 

 


The ABC's of RNG


A. what rng is

RNG is a product of decomposing organic material. RNG can come from many sources including agricultural waste, food waste, landfills and wastewater treatment plants.

b. how rng becomes Rcng

Renewable natural gas (RNG) can be burned for electricity or as a transportation fuel. If used for a transportation fuel, RNG must go through a cleaning process to remove impurities – the end product is 98% methane.

Once compressed and dispensed into a vehicle it becomes RCNG.                                            See our breakdown below for more details.

Cow manure enters the Anaerobic Digester and stays for 2-4 weeks producing biogas. This Raw RNG is cleaned by the Gas Upgrading Skid or GUS. Clean RNG comes out the other side and is sent down our pipeline where it is compressed at the utility and becomes RCNG.

From there, we deliver our RCNG to trucks at our station as well as Homes and Businesses all across the United States.


c. why Rcng is worth using

RCNG is unique from other renewable energy sources as it provides two sources of GHG savings: In transportation and in methane emissions

 

Well-to-wheels RCNG is near carbon neutral.  RCNG can reduce the well-to-wheel emissions of fleets by 90+% vs diesel.

 

Capturing methane for use as RCNG prevents harmful GHG emissions. Methane is 14 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas

 

Fair Oaks Farms uses our RCNG in their dairy fleet and replaces millions of gallons of diesel every year

These savings add up. Just in transportation emissions alone, we displace more than 10,000 metric tons of CO2 every year.

This equivalent to the CO2 emissions of*

Or in other words, the work we do is equivalent to saving*
