Hamilton RNG is working to develop food waste digester projects to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) in Ohio and Kentucky.
Hamilton RNG, a joint venture between UGI Energy Services and Synthica Energy, is developing a digester in the Village of St. Bernard, Ohio — about five miles north of Cincinnati. The digester will process approximately 190,000 annual tons of food waste from nearby food manufacturers in an anaerobic digester. It is expected to generate approximately 250,000 MMBTUs (million BTUs) of pipeline-quality RNG each year that will be injected into a local natural gas pipeline on the regional distribution system. It is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.
