Northern Biogas, LLC, a portfolio company of alternative investment firm H.I.G. Capital, has acquired three additional dairy renewable natural gas (RNG) projects, which are projected to begin commercial service by the first quarter of 2024.

The three dairy RNG projects are located close to the existing footprint of Northern Biogas, which is based in Morgantown, W.V.

Northern CEO Chris Akers said the company has doubled the number of RNG projects under construction since partnering with H.I.G. in 2022, and the company has rapidly expanded its RNG project development pipeline across the waste-to-renewable gas market.

“We look forward to utilizing our technical, commercial, and operational expertise to continue to expand our existing dairy RNG footprint and further develop our landfill and food waste RNG projects,” Akers said.

According to Northern Biogas, these RNG facilities provide sustainable, clean energy derived from organic waste, which is used to displace the consumption of fossil fuels.

“Today’s announcement further establishes Northern Biogas’ presence in the rapidly growing RNG sector,” said George Watts, managing director with H.I.G. Infrastructure. “Supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy remains a key pillar of H.I.G.’s investment philosophy, and our investment in Northern Biogas reaffirms our commitment to clean, renewable energy.”
