Who We Are

RNG Global Initiative ('RNG Global') is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that comes alongside cities, communities, companies, and change-makers around the globe to overcome the obstacles that prevent renewable natural gas from being developed.

We coordinate the knowledge, experience, and good-will of people in the RNG industry to bridge the information and financing gaps that confront potential projects and renewable energy industry growth.

In North America, the RNG Global Initiative team facilitates educational tours of RNG projects so that decision-makers can see first hand the benefits of increased production of renewable natural gas. Additionally, we administer the RNG Coalition Tudor Williams’ Academic Scholarship to award higher education tuition assistance and cultivate the next generation of RNG leaders. 

Outside of North America, RNG Global partners with local renewable energy organizations to enable the production and use of biogas-derived energy and fuel to increase renewable energy access and energy security.

Our mission

To educate & empower communities with information and resources to convert local waste to productive end-use resulting in economic and environmental benefits including but not limited to, renewable fuel, heat and power, safe food supply, sustainable land use, and clean air and drinking water.


What is RNG?

RNG is Renewable Natural Gas (biomethane), an ultra-clean and ultra low-carbon natural gas alternative that is derived from biogas. 

As organic waste breaks down it emits methane gas that can be processed to meet natural gas pipeline quality specifications. It can be used as:

  • renewable heat

  • renewable electricity, or

  • an ultra-clean drop-in vehicle fuel.


What wastes can be converted to energy and fuel?

Wastes leftover from crops like sugarcane, coffee, and even coconuts (to name a few) can be used to create energy in a digester.

Animal wastes from livestock such as cows and pigs contain energy that can be converted on farms to electricity or transportation fuel.

Food waste can also be added to anaerobic digesters that create RNG from a variety of waste feedstocks.

Waste in landfills and wastewater facilities often are ideal venues to get started, because the waste collection infrastructure is already in place.


Our solutions are not limited to RNG  We exist to support you

While our team has the greatest expertise in facilitating deployment of biogas and RNG projects, our network of industry professionals, partnerships, and expertise extends across a variety of energy sectors.

We pride ourselves in coming alongside your community, government, or business to help assess availability of local wastes and viability of solutions for renewable energy, local energy access, and savings on energy costs.
