According to a statement, these three projects are to be realized in close cooperation with SJI Renewable Energy Ventures and REV LNG LLC.
SJI Renewable Energy Ventures is the development arm of South Jersey Industries Inc., (SJI), an energy services holding company based in Folsom, New Jersey (NJ).
We are excited to partner with HoSt group who has the extensive experience in biogas plant engineering and biogas utilization technology which will help us pave the way towards making renewable fuel sources more accessible, said Donna Schempp, President SJI Renewable Energy Ventures.
REV LNG is a company specializing in the development and transportation of renewable natural gas (RNG), liquified natural gas (LNG), and compressed natural gas (CNG) in North America in which SJI also has a minority interest.
As a leader in renewable energy project development, REV LNG is committed to implementing creative energy solutions that help our company and the clients we serve to reduce our carbon footprints. Having a world-class original equipment manufacturer is vital to the end goal and we are very pleased to be working with HoSt, said David Kailbourne, CEO of REV LNG.
Poised for North American expansion
With these biogas projects in the dairy sector and the local office in Vancouver, Washington (WA), HoSt North America will have a strong footprint in the United States and will pursue expansion opportunities in the fast-growing biogas market.
These projects, together with the local presence and planned investment in this market, demonstrate the HoSt Group’s determination to meet and anticipate its customers’ needs throughout the world with the most competitive global solutions, said Graham Hartlett, Chief Sales Officer of HoSt North America.
The New York projects produce each 300 SCFM of biogas and the Ohio project approximately 475 SCFM of biogas.
RNG for the Californian market
On all three sites, the biogas is upgraded to biomethane aka renewable natural gas – RNG and delivered as compressed bioCNG to tanker trucks that will transport the gas to a gas injection site.
The RNG is destined for the Californian market under the Low Carbon Fuels Standard (LCFS) program where it will be used as a renewable transport fuel.
The projects contribute to the worldwide transition towards the production and use of renewable energy and renewable transport fuels.
We are confident that these references will be a launch platform for further projects in the US and in the dairy sector, Graham Hartlett said.
He added that dairy RNG plays a key role in the energy transition and this technology helps develop a sustainable dairy sector.
With our technologies we answer both the energy demand and the waste management topic – there is an abundant need for alternatives to fossil fuels, Graham Hartlett said.
