Renewable Biofuels Company Begins Fourth RNG Facility in Texas

Environmental Power subsidiary, Microgy, Inc., is developing its fourth large-scale, pipeline-quality renewable natural gas (RNG) production facility at the Cnossen Dairy in Hereford, Texas.

Combined with the Huckabay Ridge project currently in construction, and the Mission Dairy and Rio Leche projects currently in development, this project is expected to increase Microgy’s estimated annual RNG production capacity to approximately 2.6 million MMBTU (Million British Thermal Units) annually upon completion of these facilities. Microgy’s planned Cnossen facility would be Microgy’s fourth installation implementing its standardized, large-scale, eight-digester design, and will mirror the company’s Huckabay Ridge facility under construction in Stephenville, Texas. The facility, now entering the permitting stage, will process the waste from approximately 10,000 cattle, as well as other food industry waste. Once completed, it will generate an estimated 650,000 MMBTU of pipeline-grade RNG annually (enough to heat approximately 11,000 homes), which will be compressed and delivered directly to a natural gas pipeline. “The planned Cnossen facility demonstrates our commitment to a strategy of deploying our modular, multi-digester design in order to increase RNG production capacity under our control,” said Richard Kessel, CEO of Environmental Power.
