The Prospects for Renewable Natural Gas

This week, Geoff Dietz with the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) joins Ben Cahill with the CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program to discuss renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG is a domestic clean energy resource derived from the capture, cleaning, and conditioning of methane and other gaseous emissions from organic waste. Landfill projects and agricultural projects, particularly in dairy states, are the main sources of RNG production. Geoff and Ben discuss the future of RNG production, where demand for RNG is rising, and the potential economic and environmental benefits of RNG for the United States.
