EDF acquires Heartland biogas project
EDF Renewable Energy has closed a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement for the acquisition of Heartland Renewable Energy's biogas plant.
The project, which features a 20MW anaerobic digester and renewable natural gas (RNG) facility, is already under construction with biogas deliveries to begin by the second quarter of next year.
The plant, located in LaSalle, Colorado, will handle organic feedstock and cow manure, converting it into raw biogas. It will be one of the largest AD facilities in the US, producing up to 4,700 MMBtu of biogas per day.
The raw biogas is then processed into pipeline quality RNG. After being conditioned to pipeline grade, the RNG will be supplied to Sacramento Municipal Utility District through a 20-year gas purchase agreement.
Ralph Daley, VP of landfill gas holding for EDF Renewable Energy, says this project is the company's 'first in the anaerobic digestion segment'.
