Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a tried and true technology that has been a huge success around the globe. Germany alone (which is approximately the size of Montana), has more than 6,800 large-scale AD facilities – and China has more than 8 million small-scale digesters used for home and community gas production. These are proven systems contributing massive amounts of renewable methane gas to the power equation.
In the US, there is a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of this technology. With fewer than 300 AD facilities in the US, we’ve barely scratched the surface – with the agricultural and industrial food production industry that we have, we can easily create a significant portion of our energy using AD. You don’t have to be an environmentalist to appreciate the opportunity – to not take advantage of these feedstocks is simply throwing fuel (and profit) away.
Synthica’s mission, therefore, is to site and build AD facilities in the heartland of the US – the Midwest – to produce biogas for commercial power plants and pipeline injection.
Our facilities will receive industrial food wastes, organic by-products, brewery washout, and many other wastes, at a competitive price that makes sense when compared to landfills, incineration, or sewer disposal.
We are currently permitting, conducting site feasibility studies, and arranging feedstock agreements for our facilities – if you have an organic feedstock that you believe we may be able to process, or are interested in how you can help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
