Biogas technology leaders announce Integrated Biogas Alliance
A new global partnership to provide the global biogas industry with a unique integrated technology platform has been launched. The founding members of the Integrated Biogas Alliance (IBA) include AB Energy (Italy), Eisenmann Corporation (USA), EntsorgaFin S.p.A. (Italy), Greenlane Renewables, Inc., (Canada), and Tietjen Verfahrenstechnik GmbH (Germany), all internationally recognized technology companies with long track records of success in the biogas industry.
According to a statement, the Integrated Biogas Alliance (IBA) will be one of the largest global partnerships in the world to offer state of the art, turnkey technology solutions for turning virtually any organic waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizers.
These companies have joined forces on a non-exclusive basis to provide the global biogas industry with a unique, fully integrated organic waste to renewable energy platform solution. This platform solution will lower the inherent risks facing developers, investors and EPC’s in developing biogas plants, lowering project execution risks and improving their bankability.
With its global footprint, reach and supply chain, the IBA has the capability to process virtually any organic waste including livestock, food, and green waste, generating both renewable natural gas as well as compost and other organic fertilizers for projects anywhere in the world.
Extracting biogas from organic waste means not only producing bioenergy and other fuels from renewable sources but at the same time drastically reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in compliance with the targets set by the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement to fight climate change.
The IBA partnership brings together industry leaders with proven technologies who recognize the need for an integrated platform solution approach to advancing the deployment of biogas plants around the world. All our partners have long-standing reputations for quality delivery, execution excellence, and customer satisfaction and we are thrilled to be joining forces with such a world-class group of companies. The market is definitely pulling us towards providing customers with a total solution, where they can more easily optimize the full economic, agronomic and environmental value chain of products from the plant, driving stronger ROI, enabling more circular economy benefits while reducing project implementation and financing risk. We are also excited to bring our combined expertise to support the industry in lowering greenhouse gas emissions, something the IBA is passionate about, said Christopher Maloney, newly elected President of IBA.
