Specialty manufacturer Ingevity Corp. is partnering with renewable natural gas (RNG) solutions provider GreenGasUSA Holdings LLC to advance biogas capture and cleanup. 

According to Ingevity CEO John Fortson, the partnership advances Ingevity 2.0, the company’s strategy to advance cleaner technology solutions, as well as its exploration in RNG applications.

GreenGas CEO Marc Fetten said, “Ingevity stood out as the perfect strategic partner as we continue to provide customers with a growing variety of decarbonization and waste-to-value solutions.” 

North Charleston, SC-based Ingevity initially plans to fund GreenGas to provide solutions for methane-producing organic waste that may be converted to RNG

GreenGas, also based in Charleston, typically contracts with agricultural farms, landfills and industrial and municipal wastewater treatment facilities to gather and manage biogas from organic waste which it then sells as pipeline-quality, low carbon RNG. GreenGas also provides RNG compression, transportation and delivery directly to its customers through its pipeline injection point or as part of its virtual pipeline services. 

Ingevity said it plans to play an active role in developing carbon-based, low-pressure adsorbed natural gas technology to store and transport gas through the GreenGas model. 

This partnership is leveraging Ingevity’s expertise as an operating and technology partner for GreenGas, but it also provides Ingevity with a foothold in the expanding RNG industry.
