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 1500 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 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 email@example.com.
