Montauk Renewables to Construct Landfill Gas-to-RNG Facility in South Carolina

Published on: 

Montauk’s project will bring an additional 900 MMBtu daily output of RNG to the region.

Montauk Renewables has revealed plans to expand its presence into the South Carolina market with the development of a new landfill gas-to-renewable natural gas (RNG) facility. The project is anticipated to add approximately 900 MMBtu per day to the company's production capacity upon its completion, which is scheduled for mid-2024.

Sean McClain, President and CEO of Montauk Renewables, explained that the new RNG site in South Carolina demonstrates a rapidly changing industry landscape. Over the next 18 months, Montauk Renewables expects to invest approximately $25 million in total project costs, with investments beginning immediately.


The development of this facility not only supports Montauk Renewables' growth strategy but also contributes to South Carolina's clean-energy goals. As the state seeks to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and transition toward more sustainable energy sources, the new RNG facility will provide a resource for meeting these objectives. The project is expected to create job opportunities and stimulate economic growth within the local community.
