RNG plant planned for Quebec

Biogest America is partnering with Les Équipements Agricoles Sarrazin Ltée

Biogest America, a biogas plant manufacturer and operator based in Denver, is planning to develop a renewable natural gas (RNG) project in Quebec, Canada.

The Saint-Nazaire d’Acton area project is planned to produce 105,000 MMBTU (350 Nm³/h) of RNG and demonstrate the benefits of the PowerRing digester technology, underscoring its suitability and effectiveness for the Canadian market. During fermentation, the waste is transformed into high-quality organic fertilizer that substitutes for chemical products. The company said the new project will introduce a novel concept by integrating biochar production. This dual purpose approach improves RNG production and contributes to sustainable organic waste management.

Biogest America is partnering with Les Équipements Agricoles Sarrazin Ltée, which offers products and services to facilitate the adaptation of agricultural and forestry operations to climate change.

“This collaboration represents a significant step forward in our mission of greening the gas through innovative energy solutions,” said Biogest’s Head of Sales, Daniel Bauer. “The Saint-Nazaire d’Acton area RNG project exemplifies our commitment to leveraging cuttingedge technology to address pressing environmental challenges while simultaneously driving economic growth and fostering community resilience.”

RNG is a renewable energy source that can be carbon-negative, as it significantly reduces methane emissions from agricultural operations. BIogest said its plants produce not only pipeline-quality green gas but also an organic fertilizer that helps reduce the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture.
