Meet Burnham RNG

Burnham is a wastewater and agricultural waste to RNG provider that helps communities profitably reduce treatment & disposal costs, improve environmental outcomes and re-use energy, water, and nutrients.

The company is focused on efforts to turn waste into valuable resources. Burnham manages and reuses organic waste and wastewater by transforming it into renewable natural gas, clean water, and high-value soil additives that enhance sustainability and profitability.

Led by professionals with decades of bioenergy experience, Burnham combines entrepreneurial flexibility with a commitment to operational excellence. The company is tightly aligned with Sustainable Energy Ventures, an experienced developer of RNG projects across the Pacific Northwest. And it’s backed by Ares Management Corporation, a leading global alternative investment management firm with over $395 billion of assets under management.

We help communities convert wastewater and other organic waste into an asset. It starts with converting biogas into valuable renewable natural gas (RNG). By marketing and selling RNG and capturing associated tax benefits, Burnham can significantly reduce the cost of waste treatment and disposal while improving environmental outcomes. Burnham is a turnkey solutions provider that can build, finance and operate these facilities.
