EDF buys anaerobic digester, renewable natural gas project

EDF Renewable Energy closed on a purchase agreement to buy the Heartland Biogas Project with Heartland Renewable Energy LLC.

The 20 MW-equivalent anaerobic digester and renewable natural gas (RNG) facility has commenced construction activities with biogas deliveries to begin by the end of first quarter 2014.

The project, located in Weld County near LaSalle, Colorado, will use a complete mix anaerobic digester system to produce up to 4,700 MMBtu of biogas daily.

The anaerobic digestion system converts organic feedstock and dairy cow manure into raw biogas. The raw biogas is then processed into pipeline quality RNG. After being conditioned to pipeline grade, the RNG will be supplied to Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) through a 20-year purchase agreement.
