    WAGA ENERGY 2021-04-14 - Break-through landfill renewable natural gas technology in Quebec

    Waga Energy, the European leader in landfill gas-to-RNG technology, has been enlisted by The Mauricie Residual Materials Management Board to deploy its innovative gas upgrading solution at the Saint-Étienne-des-Grès landfill, in Quebec. The green gas produced will be purchased by Énergir, the largest gas distribution company in the province, and injected into its gas grid onsite. This landfill gas-to-RNG project will be the first in Canada to use the WAGABOX® technology. Until now, the landfill gas at Saint-Étienne-des-Grès was captured and burned in a flare.

    Designed to process 3,400 cubic meters of biogas per hour (2,000 scfm), the WAGABOX® unit in Saint-Étienne-des-Grès will produce 468,000 GJ (444,000 mmBtus) of renewable gas per year, corresponding to the annual consumption of 8,000 local households. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2022.

    Thanks to the WAGABOX® technology, treating the gas is no longer an expense, it is a new income stream. WAGABOX® is a breakthrough technology for the recovery of landfill gas in the form of RNG injected into gas grids. This innovative technology is the result of 10 years of research & development and benefitted from the active support of French industry giant Air Liquide. Combining membrane filtration and cryogenic distillation, it guarantees a higher energy yield than solutions based on electricity production. tm_source=linkedin

      Cory Ziskind for Brightmark June 30, 2021 - Brightmark Breaks Ground on Three Renewable Natural Gas Projects in Michigan

      SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brightmark, the global waste solutions provider, today broke ground on three renewable natural gas (RNG) projects in Michigan. Brightmark currently owns and operates 27 RNG projects in 8 states and will operate 6 RNG projects in Michigan upon completion of these 3 projects, which is expected in the first half of 2022. Chevron purchases RNG produced from these projects and markets the volumes for use in vehicles operating on CNG.

      The Red Arrow RNG project in Hartford, Michigan will convert manure from 5,750 dairy cows and generate approximately 34,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas credits each year.

      The Meadow Rock Renewable Natural Gas project in Greenville, Michigan will convert manure from 3,020 dairy cows and generate approximately 28,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions credits. The RNG produced at both Red Arrow and Meadow Rock will be injected into the ANR Pipeline.

      The SunRyz RNG project in Morenci, Michigan will convert manure from 3,250 dairy cows and generate approximately 27,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions credits. The RNG generated at SunRyz will be injected into the nearby Rover pipeline.

        GetNews June 29, 2021 - Avolta Breaks Ground on the first of a series of Biogas Projects in Arizona

        Avolta held an official groundbreaking to kick off the first of two RNG Projects at the Butterfield and Milky Way dairies outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

        Collectively, Butterfield and Milky Way dairies care for more than 50,000 cows and the projects will generate over 675,000 MMBtu of RNG annually which will ultimately be distributed as renewable transportation fuel. The Butterfield and Milky Way projects are scheduled to begin delivering gas into a Southwest Gas Pipeline at the end of the fourth quarter 2021 and first quarter 2022, respectively. Both facilities will be operated and maintained by Nacelle Solutions.

        Avolta is a developer of renewable natural gas projects including identifying potential development targets, performing financial and operational due diligence, securing gas rights, obtaining off-take agreements for gas and environmental credits, and project financing.

        Nacelle has successfully executed 320+ different projects with an average throughput of 2000 scfm (~3 million scf per day) of processed gas. Nacelle designs, builds and installs RNG upgrading equipment and currently operates and maintains several RNG facilities throughout the United States.

          Andy Balaskovitz for Energy March 28, 2021 - RNG, battery storage to play key roles in low-emissions future

          The ability to store intermittent renewable energy from wind and solar and capturing methane emissions from common waste streams are two technologies poised to play a bigger role in a lower carbon future. In 2018, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued an order directing regional power grid operators to begin integrating and appropriately valuing energy storage.

          Detroit-based DTE Energy is the only Michigan utility that offers a program for customers to voluntarily purchase RNG. Its subsidiary DTE Biomass Energy is also developing RNG projects in Wisconsin.

          Johannes Escudero, founder and CEO of the California-based Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, told MiBiz that RNG has been on an exponential growth curve in recent years after being introduced in the early 1980s. Developers built an average of about one RNG project between 1982 and 2011, or 31 total projects in the U.S. Since 2011, 157 RNG facilities are now in operation. Escudero expects about 800 projects to be online by 2030, and 5,000 by 2040.

            Haley Rischar for Waste Today 8 July 2021 - Bioenergy DevCo opens anaerobic digestion facility in Maryland

            Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has granted more than $460,000 to support the construction of The Bioenergy DEVCO anaerobic digestor on the Maryland Food Center campus in Jessup, reports WBALTV.

            The resulting compost material will get put into bags for farms to use in agriculture. The digester will have the capacity to divert nearly 115,000 tons a year of organic residuals from landfills and incineration.

            The facility will also create approximately 30 to 50 full-time jobs, including construction and long-term maintenance and operation jobs.
