Ingevity, GreenGasUSA to explore RNG solutions
With this investment, announced on 27 April, Ingevity now holds less than 50% ownership in GreenGas.
Based in Charleston, South Carolina, GreenGas contracts with agricultural farms, landfills, and industrial and municipal wastewater treatment facilities to collect and treat biogas from the organic waste of its operations that it then sells as pipeline-quality, low-carbon RNG.
The company also provides compression, transportation, and delivery of natural gas to its customers through its wholly-owned pipeline injection point, or as part of its virtual pipeline services.
Ingevity will now play an active role in exploring and accelerating the application of its activated carbon-based low pressure adsorbed natural gas (ANG) technology for the storage and transport of natural gas as part of the GreenGas model. The collaboration will also facilitate RNG use within Ingevity’s ANG vehicle platform by offering fleet customers broader access to RNG as a transportation fuel.
“Our partnership with GreenGas is yet another step forward as we advance Ingevity 2.0 and explore value-added applications for our activate carbon in growing markets like RNG,” said Ingevity’s president and CEO, John Fortson.
“We are excited to work with Marc and his team to understand where our technology and expertise can help broaden the reach of RNG as an environmentally and economically viable energy solution and enhance the innovative offerings of GreenGas.”
Marc Fetten, GreenGas founder, added: “Ingevity stood out to us as the perfect partner as we continue to provide customers with a growing variety of decarbonisation and waste-to-value solutions.
“The company’s proven track record as a collaborative partner with operational experience in leveraging its activated carbon technology to drive the commercialisation of its market-leading ANG platform will help to accelerate our missions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We look forward to continuing to scale our product and service offerings with Ingevity.”
