November 8, 2023 [Biomass Magazine]- Enbridge has taken another significant step in the business of manufacturing and transporting renewable natural gas (RNG)—by announcing the purchase of seven operating U.S. landfill gas-to-RNG facilities from respected, experienced RNG developer Morrow Renewables.
The portfolio, worth US$1.2 billion, instantly establishes our RNG business as a North American midstream leader by volume. The carbon-neutral fuel will play a critical role in society’s cleaner energy future, and these assets complement recent Enbridge moves to grow North America’s volumes of RNG made from food waste and farm waste.
“This transaction represents a uniquely de-risked portfolio of operating and scalable RNG assets,” says Enbridge President and CEO Greg Ebel. “The landfill gas-to-RNG facilities . . . will accelerate progress toward our energy transition goals. I am pleased to welcome the Morrow Renewables team members to the Enbridge family,” adds Ebel of about 86 full-time employees in plant and field operations.
The Morrow facilities deliver RNG from municipal landfills in six Texas locations—Edinburg, Hinton, Tyler, Melissa, Longview, and Alvarado—in addition to Fort Smith, Arkansas. All are regions with growing demographics, ongoing landfill growth and strong partnerships with local municipalities.
