Here’s more news out of California – a new ethanol plant in the San Joaquin Valley that will utilize dairy manure.
Human BioSystems (“HBS”) announced today that HBS BioEnergy (“HBSE”), has formed a joint venture with Visalia based Dairy Development Group and Agrimass Enviro-Energy to build a park in the San Joaquin Valley of California, which will utilize waste from surrounding dairies to provide the power needed to fuel the proposed ethanol plant to be located on site.
“The joint venture involves developing and operating an innovative agricultural waste-to-energy park,” explained Len Chapman, CEO of Agrimass Enviro-Energy and Dairy Development Group. “This is the perfect model for agricultural production because it takes a problem – manure – and turns it into power, which then powers the ethanol plant that produces cleaner-burning fuels. This is the kind of green industry we need in the Valley.”
Agrimass Enviro-Energy blends technology, engineering and dairy expertise to help Valley dairymen implement systems that help them meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations. Dairy Development Group assists dairymen in planning, permitting, building and operating their dairies, with a focus on environmental mitigation and compliance.
