Hamilton RNG Holdings LLC (Hamilton RNG) has broken ground on a new food waste digester project in Cincinnati, Ohio. Hamilton RNG is a joint venture owned by UGI Energy Services and Synthica Energy LLC (Synthica).

Expected to be completed by Q4 2024, Synthica St. Bernard will process approximately 190,000 annual tons of food waste in an anaerobic digester. Once completed, the project will have the capacity to generate approximately 250,000 MMBtu of pipeline-quality renewable natural gas (RNG) annually. The RNG produced will be injected into a local natural gas pipeline on the regional distribution system.

“This facility will process organic waste from the greater Cincinnati region that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, or less sustainable disposal sites, and turn it into RNG,” said Sam Schutte, Synthica Energy’s chief executive officer. “From the environmental benefits Synthica St. Bernard will bring to the greater Cincinnati area to the jobs this project will create and support, this project is a win for Hamilton RNG and the surrounding communities.”
