Energize Missouri Renewable Energy Biogas Grants

The Biogas Energy Subgrant program was created under the U.S. Department of Energy’s State Energy Program, made possible by funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This one-time program was devised to support shovel-ready agricultural and industrial projects that use anaerobic digest systems and landfill biogas-to-energy systems to produce biopower or bioheat in the state of Missouri.

Two projects were competitively selected for subgrant awards totaling $900,000 to develop farm and landfill biogas projects in 2010.

Together the two recipients listed below are expected to create over 25 temporary and around 10 permanent jobs, produce nearly 250,000 MMBTU of biogas, and generate nearly 12,500,000 kWh of green electricity annually. In addition to significant odor reduction and water pollution mitigation, these projects will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 75,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent annually. This reduction is the equivalent of removing more than 14,000 passenger vehicles from the road.

The subgrant recipients include:
