Marathon Capital, LLC (“Marathon Capital”) is pleased to announce GreenGasUSA, (“GreenGas” or “the company”) a US-based renewable natural gas (“RNG”) developer, owner, and operator, has signed a definitive agreement with the IFM Net Zero Infrastructure Fund (“NZIF”) to sell a majority interest in the company. NZIF is an open-ended fund targeting essential infrastructure assets that seek to accelerate the world’s transition to a net-zero emissions economy.
GreenGas is a fully integrated renewables platform headquartered in South Carolina with extensive experience originating, developing, and operating RNG projects. GreenGas’ RNG projects significantly reduce emissions from waste streams by capturing methane, which is 25 times more harmful on atmospheric warming than CO2 per the Environmental Protection Agency. The Company sells the RNG produced using mature technologies through long-term offtake contracts with investment grade commercial & industrial customers, such as Mercedes-Benz, Berkshire Hathaway Energy and Duke University.
Marathon Capital acted as exclusive financial advisor to GreenGas on the transaction.

We look forward to supporting both IFM and GreenGas as they continue to expand the business.” – Gary Greenblatt, Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of NYC, Marathon Capital
