Biogest to build its first biogas plant in Idaho

Biogest has received its first US order to build an agricultural biogas plant in Idaho, which will have a thermal output of 90,000 MMBTU per year and will utilise 120,000 tonnes of cow manure per year.

As well as producing biogas, the plant will transform the manure into high-quality organic fertiliser that will substitute existing chemical products. Biogest’s technology aims to deliver significant advantages in energy efficiency and operational safety as well as an easy and cost efficient maintenance system.

Biogas production from animal, agricultural and food waste is one of the most rapidly expanding sectors in the US renewable sector, supported by Federal and State Governments through a number of programmes such as the Californian Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). This has led to major investments in the construction of biomethane plants will become renewable fuel suppliers for the transport sector.

“The local agriculture in Idaho is vast and impressive, allowing for ample opportunity to utilize alternative energy sources” said Biogest America CEA Martin Schlerka. “This first project will be a best practice example for our US project pipeline and we can’t wait to show our reference plant to potential clients live”.

Biogest America CFO Gregor Vogrin added that the company’s first project in the US will combine proven, high-efficiency digestion with the excellent market conditions the US has to offer and that it will also serve as a key reference for future renewable biomethane projects.

Biogest America is a biogas plant manufacturer and operator which operates out of Denver, Colorado.
