Roechling Industrial Gastonia Makes Investment to Lower Emissions
Roechling Industrial Gastonia, LP, an industrial product manufacturer specializing in stock shape thermoplastic products, will start to use FlexRNG this year to address their natural gas consumption.
By investing in FlexRNG, it will ensure there is no net release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when it burns natural gas.
FlexRNG works by offsetting natural gas emissions with verified carbon offsets and by displacing a portion of natural gas consumption with renewable natural gas (RNG). It includes verifying, tracking and retiring renewable thermal credits and carbon offset credits in the company’s name.
“We are proud to partner with Gas South on our investment to reduce our environmental impact,” said Tim Brown, President of Roechling Industrial North America in a statement. “We are making strides with our holistic decarbonization strategy and are energized by the vision of a carbon neutral Roechling Industrial.”
The company’s goal is to offset its GHG emission and reach carbon neutrality by 2030.
Gas South, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cobb Electric Membership Corporation, is the largest retail natural gas provider in the southeastern United States. In addition to delivering renewable energy products like FlexRNG, the Atlanta-based company has invested $23 million in solar energy projects and plans to invest at least $15 million in renewable energy projects annually over the next three years.
