Canada-headed organic waste treatment plant operators and technology providers Anaergia Inc. (Anaergia) has announced that it has received the 2022 "Biogas Groundbreaker Award" from the European Biogas Association (EBA).

Presented at a ceremony in Brussels, Belgium during the recently held EBA annual conference, the Biogas Groundbreaker Award recognizes the company’s growth and dedication to research activities as well as its ambition to accelerate biogas production at scale in Europe and across the world.

Anaergia has been rapidly growing its operations in Europe as part of its commitment to combatting climate change by producing renewable fuels at scale.

The firm has created one of the continent’s largest organic waste-to-biomethane platforms and by 2023 will have completed the construction of six new facilities in Italy.

These plants in Italy will process about 230 000 tonnes of organic waste each year and use it to produce pipeline-quality biomethane (aka renewable natural gas – RNG). This will translate to about 50 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent CO2eq of greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions per year.

Via subsidiaries, the company is also building the Tønder plant in Denmark. It is expected to produce 1.4 million MMBtu per year of biomethane (aka renewable natural gas – RNG), which would make it one of the world’s largest anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities.

In addition to producing biomethane, this plant will provide biogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) for the production of green methanol for use as fuel for the world’s first container vessel operating on carbon-neutral fuel.

We’re grateful that the European Biogas Association has recognized Anaergia’s passion for stopping climate change through the global-scale transformation of waste into renewable fuels. Our dedication has led us to create a complete set of technologies that can convert any type of organic waste into biogas. So instead of allowing waste to cause climate change, we are using it to create a carbon-negative fuel that is helping the world reach net-zero, said Dr Andrew Benedek, Chairman and CEO of Anaergia.

Founded in February 2009, the European Biogas Association (EBA) is committed to the deployment of sustainable biogas and biomethane production and use throughout the continent.

EBA counts today on a well-established network of nearly 200 national organizations covering the whole biogas and biomethane value chain across Europe and beyond.
