BIOGEST builds 1st biogas plant in Idaho

  • 90,000MMBTU/year of installed capacity
  • 120,000t of cow manure
  • Dairy farm in Idaho

Cassia County, ID / Denver, CO: BIOGEST received its first US order to build an agricultural biogas plant in Idaho. The plant has a thermal output of 90,000 MMBTU p.a. and operates on 120,000t of cow manure per year. During the process, the manure is transformed into high-quality organic fertilizer that acts as a substitute for chemical products. BIOGEST’s proven biogas plant technology offers significant advantages in energy efficiency and operational safety as well as an easy and cost-efficient maintenance system.

The expanding energy gap, technology growth and population density has greatly increased the importance of renewable energy resources. Biogas production from animal, agricultural and food waste is one of the most rapidly expanding sectors of renewable energy in the United States. Federal and State Governments support this development through several programs such as the Californian Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), which has led to major investments in the construction of biomethane plants that will become renewable fuel suppliers for the transport sector.

BIOGEST America CEO Martin Schlerka “The local agriculture in Idaho is vast and impressive, allowing for ample opportunity to utilize alternative energy sources. 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 “Our first project in the US will combine proven, high-efficiency digestion with the excellent market conditions the US has to offer. It will also serve as a key reference for future renewable biomethane projects. We look forward to supporting more farms as they diversify their income and embrace renewable energy technology!”

BIOGEST America Inc. is a biogas plant manufacturer and operator out of Denver, CO. As a renewable source of energy, biomethane offers technological, environmental, and economic advantages: energy is generated 24/7, all year round, and therefore plays an important role in reducing carbon emissions and greening the transport sector. In addition to helping achieve climate protection goals, biomethane also leverages farm income and reduces reliance on market price for agricultural goods. Decentralised energy generation also guarantees sustainable local development.
