Anaergia, a clean energy and recycling company located in Canada, is putting cow manure to good use by producing renewable electricity from biogas by anaerobically digesting cow manure from farms in Okayama Prefecture.
Anaergia will build a biogas plant for Toyo Energy Solution Co. in Kasaoka, Okayama. The facility will save around 13,500 tonnes of CO2e in emissions from manure and fossil fuels, comparable to removing approximately 2,900 vehicles off the road for a year.
The project will anaerobically digest around 250 tonnes of cow manure daily from the surrounding area and use the generated biogas to power a combined heat and power (CHP) generator system. The system will generate around 1.2 megawatts of clean, renewable electricity annually to power approximately 2,200 homes. The plant will be designed, engineered, installed, and commissioned by Anaergia. Toyo will be in charge of the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC).
