H.I.G. Capital has acquired a controlling interest in Northern Biogas, a waste-to-renewable natural gas company specializing in the development, construction and operation of renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities that represent sustainable, clean energy solutions for waste generated from dairies, landfills and other facilities producing organic waste including food waste.
Based in Morgantown, W.V., Northern Biogas designs, builds, owns, operates, services and maintains anaerobic digester and RNG facilities, drawing from its team’s extensive, decades-long experience of rapidly scaling and operating pipeline and gas treatment infrastructure in the natural gas industry.

Northern Biogas operates the Middleton, Wis., RNG facility, a joint venture with EnTech Solutions, whereby waste from dairy cows is converted to RNG through an anaerobic digestion process.
