Renewable Natural Gas

Simplified Compliance Testing. Fast, Accurate Solutions.

We know it as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), biogas, or sometimes biomethane or renewable methane.
Recent advancements in environmental technology make this one of the most important strategies
for a clean energy future.

Tackling the Challenges of RNG Testing, Together 

As the demand for renewable natural gas grows, so do the obstacles associated with meeting rigid pipeline quality standards—from requirements and specifications to specialized sampling equipment and testing methods. 

 Common RNG testing challenges we can help you resolve: 

  • Low level gas constituency criteria for refined biogas
  • Complex testing applications that require advanced knowledge of sampling and analytical methodology
  • Rapid turnaround requirements for test results
  • Potentially hazardous safety environments for sampling technicians

Our experienced, highly trained technicians will quickly and confidently manage every step of your RNG testing process in a manner that prioritizes safety. Redundant equipment, surplus staffing within a nationwide network, advanced analytical capabilities and a sophisticated reporting program yield the accurate, timely data that’s critical for your pipeline entry compliance and maintenance program.

Biogas Sampling, Testing, and Analysis Services

As great as your RNG opportunities are, we know that the certification requirements can be equally challenging. Let us help you navigate the sampling, analytical and reporting complexities and simplify the process.

With a national footprint and experienced RNG project managers, Alliance Technical Group has teams ready to respond, and will immediately schedule an accurate test program to facilitate gas custody transfer into the pipeline. 

3 Key Compliance Aspects of EPA Regulations for RNG 

Batch Pathway Testing:
Before mixing with non-qualifying gas, each batch of RNG must be tested and analyzed. 

Product Transfer Documents (PTDs):
For pipeline movement, precise reporting and maintenance of PTDs is required.

Third Party Audits:
Required for RNG projects, turn to our consulting division for your impartial auditing needs.
