As the energy industry clamors for technologies to reach decarbonization goals, renewable natural gas (RNG), though still in short supply, may be the solution for hard-to-abate sectors. 

Executives from RNG production, to midstream transportation and to utility applications discussed the potential scalability of the biofuel during a panel at CERAWeek by S&P Global. 

After being purified to 90% methane, RNG “can be used for really anything that natural gas can be used for,” said Gunvor USA LLC’s Shane Foster, energy transition lead. RNG can be processed into compressed natural gas “for transportation, or as a fuel source for utilities, competing with any thermal applications, et cetera. So it’s really, at the end of the day, a fungible product, with natural gas.”
