Dexter, NM Dairy Biogas Plant Expects October Startup (Ind. Report)
Roeslein Alternative Energy
Date: 2021-06-14
National construction firm Kolb Group reports its dairy-waste biogas plant near Dexter, New Mexico, is expected to begin operation in October, this year, for natural gas sales early in 2022.

The $45 million to $50 million plant has received the necessary air emissions related permits but is awaiting an agricultural wastewater discharge permit through the New Mexico Environment Department.

The plant will managed by St. Louis-based Roeslein Alternative Energy. The plant's anaerobic digestors can handle up to 350,000 gpd of dairy waste.(Source: Kilb Group, 11 June, 2021) (Contact: Kolb Group, Kolb Bioenergy NM 1 LLC. www.brinkmannconstructors.com/work/kolb-bioenergy; Roeslein Alternative Energy, Rudi Roeslein, Pres., Brian Gale, Bus.

83 Smithfield Lagoons in Missouri Now Producing RNG (Ind. Report)
Roeslein Alternative Energy
Date: 2021-05-07
Roeslein Alternative Energy reports it has covered 83 lagoons and installed eight gas purification systems capable of producing 800,000 dekatherms of RNG for Smithfield Foods hog finishing farms at six different sites that are now producing renewable natural gas (RNG) in northern Missouri.

Roeslein has also completed 26 new lagoon digesters including over 30 miles of on-farm and off-farm piping to move the RNG into the connection point for Smithfield in Milford, Utah.

ISU Anaerobic Digestion, RNG R&D Funded (R&D, Funding)
Roeslein Alternative Energy,Iowa State University
Date: 2021-04-21
In Ames, Iowa State University (ISU) reports it and Penn State University and Roeslein Alternative Energy have received a five-year, $10 million grant from the USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture for the Consortium for the Cultivating Human and Natural Regenerative Enterprise anaerobic digestion, renewable natural gas (RNG) project.

Iowa State researchers are also looking to expand the anaerobic digestion feedstock mix to add flexibility and environmental benefits, reduce costs, simplify operations and so that more farmers could take advantage of the technology to make money and improve the environment.

USDA $10Mn Grant to Support AD, RNG Development (Funding Report)
Roeslein Alternative Energy
Date: 2020-07-22
A recently announced five-year, $10 million grant from the USDA National Institute for Food and Agricultural will allow the Consortium for Cultivating Human and Natural reGenerative Enterprise (C-CHANGE) research team led by Iowa State University, Penn State and Roeslein Alternative Energy (RAE) to develop new methods of turning biomass and manure into fuel and develop new value chains on US farms, with emphasis on renewable natural gas (RNG).

C-CHANGE researchers are developing new ways for farmers to produce RNG that could be used as an energy source both on and off farms. The project focuses on anaerobic digestion (AD) and new separation technologies, allowing biogas to be upgraded to RNG and distributed through the gas pipeline network.

The project director on the transdisciplinary and multi-institutional grant is Lisa Schulte Moore, a professor of natural resource ecology and management and associate director of the Bioeconomy Institute at Iowa State. According to Schulte Moore, the consortium will develop methods for farmers to make more efficient use of resources.

Smithfield, Roeslein Increase Missouri RNG Investments (Ind Report)
Smithfield, Roeslein I
Date: 2020-02-24
Virginia-headquartered Smithfield Foods Inc. and St. Louis-based Roeslein Alternative Energy are reporting an additional $45 million investment in their Monarch Bioenergy joint venture, which captures methane from hog manure to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) in Missouri. The additional investment will enable the continued implementation of manure-to-energy projects on Smithfield's farms, resulting in RNG generation across 85 pct of the company's hog finishing spaces in the state.

Monarch converts hog manure collected from Smithfield Hog Production farms in into RNG, while simultaneously delivering ecological services and developing wildlife habitat. Through this joint venture, all Smithfield company-owned finishing farms in Missouri will have the infrastructure to produce RNG.
