Anaerobic Digester Biogas Production & Gas Conditioning Facility on
7.5 Million Gallon Capacity
Built in 2007 for $26 Million
Selling in Tracts or as Entirety
: The Huckabay Ridge Facility was built in 2007 for $26 Million and reached full capacity in 2008. It is one of the largest anaerobic digestion facilities in North America with 8 digester tanks, each with a capacity of 916,000 gallons, to produce 650,000,000 Btu of Natural Gas Annually, or the Equivalent of 4,500,000 Gallons of Oil. The plant converts manure and organics into methane-rich biogas through the process of anaerobic digestion. The facility also serves as a gas treating plant, which upgrades the biogas to pipeline quality. Huckabay Ridge provides natural gas, renewable power, and reduces greenhouse gases. This facility offers an excellent opportunity for a new owner!
Reason for Sale
: EM Biogas, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Element Markets, LLC, acquired the Huckabay Ridge facility in November of 2010 and allocated over $26 Million to the facility’s equipment and infrastructure. This acquisition was part of the Company’s broader strategy to own assets to support its biomethane marketing business. The owner is now offering the facility for sale because Element Markets has refocused its portfolio exclusively on landfill gas biomethane assets.
: Manure and substrate (glycerin, grease trap and other organic waste) is turned into biomethane (methane, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide) and fertilizer through microbial co-digestion. The substrate provides most of the carbon needed for biomethane production, while the manure provides pH, alkalinity and buffer capacity to maintain biological stability during the multi-stage digestion process. Once digestion is complete, the resulting biomethane is piped to an onsite processing plant where carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and water are removed. The end product is clean, high-quality renewable natural gas, which is piped to an intrastate pipeline where it is sold and delivered to a large California utility.
Huckabay Ridge processes about 12,500 tons of manure and 14,600,000 gallons of substrate per year – waste that would otherwise be dumped in unsustainable destinations such as landfills. Through sustainable use of the waste, the facility reduces greenhouse gas emissions, minimizes adverse impacts to local watersheds, and produces liquid and solid fertilizer to promote crop growth.
