Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), or bio-methane, is a naturally-occurring gas released by decomposing organic matter. RNG is primarily composed of methane. When left uncaptured and released into the environment, methane's global warming potential is more than 20 times that of carbon dioxide (CO2). However, capturing RNG generated by anaerobic digestion or other means, and using it as an alternative transportation fuel (such as Compressed Natural Gas, or CNG) reduces naturally-occurring greenhouse gases. Making RNG available to our customers enables them to achieve a near-zero carbon footprint in their transportation supply chain.
Near Zero RNG - An Affordable Sustainability Measure
How Do I Get RNG?
Trillium CNG works with your company to direct our supply of RNG to your CNG fleet. This is done by transporting the fuel through existing natural gas pipelines and dispensing it at either a Trillium or customer-owned CNG station.
Is RNG More Expensive than CNG?
Sustainability is a primary concern for Trillium and our customers, so we provide RNG at no additional cost. Contact us and ask a sales representative how we can help you save money while switching over to this ultra low-carbon fuel.
Is RNG Safe For My Vehicle?
Primarily composed of methane, once RNG is in the pipeline system it is ready for use as a fungible source of natural gas. CNG vehicles running on the fuel will experience all the benefits associated with running on natural gas.
