Vision Ridge Partners, an investor in sustainable assets, has committed $100 million (€86 million) to support the establishment and build-out of Vision RNG.

Vision RNG is a full service developer and operator of landfill gas infrastructure to capture the gas and convert it into sustainable RNG.

The company will partner with landfill owners to develop, design, build, own and operate technologies that convert landfill gas into RNG. In doing so, the company will provide solutions for landfill sites previously considered too small for viable projects and create a new sustainable energy source for consumers.

Vision RNG currently manages projects under development across Virginia and Missouri and expects to begin operations in the fourth quarter of 2022. The company is led by CEO Bill Johnson, who previously served as CEO of ShalePro Energy Services.

“Landfill gas has long created challenges for landfill owners, the surrounding communities, and the greater environment,” said Johnson.

“Vision RNG is determined to be part of the solution by developing projects that safely convert waste emissions into projects that are not only marketable but also environmentally friendly. We are grateful for the support of Vision Ridge, which shares our mission of delivering positive environmental impact, and look forward to a strong partnership as we scale our business.”

Reuben Munger, managing partner of Vision Ridge, added: “Bill and his Vision RNG team are the ideal partners for Vision Ridge, given their commitment to transforming assets to unlock environmental benefits.

“Their deep energy infrastructure and operations experience uniquely positions them to identify landfill gas sites, address permitting and compliance needs, and develop on-site and off-site infrastructure to create renewable energy for society and value for our investors.”
