Renewable Energy, Organic Materials
Our “Energy Gardens”– also known as our anaerobic digesters – produce clean, low-cost energy in the form of biogas that can be converted into electricity, heat and natural gas suitable for use in a variety of applications.
Pipeline-grade natural gas – We clean biogas to a methane content of 97% and sell it into existing natural gas pipelines. These pipelines typically transport gas to be used for electricity production at a combined cycle power plant, for building heating, or for industrial use.
Compressed natural gas (CNG) – We clean biogas to a methane content of 98% and compress it to 3000 psi to be used as a transportation fuel. This fuel can also be run in a diesel-CNG dual-system tank, reducing demand on diesel engines.
Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF) – We create a mix of refined, low-moisture, high-heat value materials like wood chips, bark and shavings that can replace coal in industrial boilers.
Creating and using clean, renewable energy presents a myriad of benefits.
- Energy independence
- Green jobs
- Vibrant local economies
- Reduced climate change
- Local pollution reduction
Did You Know?
If we had harnessed the energy from the organic materials disposed by North America in 2009 – enough to fill a football stadium more than 50 times – we could have produced enough electricity to power over 2.5 million homes.
