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.
