Biomass energy has the potential to supply a significant portion of America's energy needs while revitalizing rural economies, increasing energy independence, and reducing greenhouse gases. EFP’s biogas facility will use a GE Jenbacher biogas system to process up to 550 tons per day of feedstock utilizing the latest in anaerobic digestion technology, reducing the annual release of over 20,000 tons of GHGs into the atmosphere.
Local farmers will benefit from the biogas generation's end-product: a high-quality, agricultural fertilizer that neutralizes acid levels with a higher Ph-value that is nearly odorless. Using this kind of fertilizer instead of the original manure has a positive effect on the local water bodies. The use of agricultural feedstock to produce biogas gives farms another way to reduce their operational costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
