EverGen secures 10-year RNG offtake agreement in Alberta
GrowTEC, located on the Perry Family Farm near Lethbridge, Alberta, is an operating farm scale RNG facility which has been converting organic waste into biogas and generating renewable power for over nine years.
EverGen acquired a 67% interest in GrowTEC in July 2022.
The agreement provides for the purchase of up to 60,000 gigajoules of RNG annually and, with the existing FortisBC Energy offtake agreement, GrowTEC’s expected RNG production volumes are now fully contracted for both phases of the expansion project.
With Phase 1 of the RNG expansion project at GrowTEC completed, EverGen said it expects to continue the development of the facility through the addition of preprocessing & depackaging equipment, to broaden the range of organic waste the facility can process, and the expansion of RNG capacity, which includes the addition of a third anaerobic digestor.
Phase 2 of the project is expected to increase production capacity to 140,000 GJ of RNG annually.
"This marks another key milestone for EverGen, underpinning the completion of the GrowTEC Phase I RNG expansion with strong offtake partners in Irving Oil and FortisBC,” said Mischa Zajtmann, CEO of EverGen.
