  • waste water sludge treatment plants;
  • landfills;
  • anaerobic digestion from agricultural residues;
  • anaerobic digestion from domestic and industrial organic waste;
  • any other producer capable of producing volumes of RNG from any other source of organic matter.

Producers who want to supply volumes of renewable natural gas may now do so. Bids must be submitted by Monday, December 2, 2019 at 5 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
