Today, BioTown BioGas hosted a formal commissioning ceremony and activated the digester and processing facility. This new facility will become one of the largest producers of renewable natural gas in North America. The event began with General Manager Chad Hoerr, welcoming guests and acknowledging the partners on the project.
“A major community and industry milestone like this does not happen overnight. BioTown Ag and Green Rock Energy Partners put in years of work to lay the foundation and to prepare for a lower carbon future in farming that, at first, probably sounded like a pipe dream. The State of Indiana’s leadership, in addition to support from Green Rock and BioTown Ag, have been critical in bringing our vision into reality,” Chad shared.
The commissioning event provided an opportunity for guests to tour the new facility and learn about the technology used in RNG production. The event also featured speeches from BioTown BioGas team members, Green Rock Energy Partners, and Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch.
“This day represents a tipping point for our region, for the energy industry, and for a more sustainable future,” said Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, the state’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. “With the commissioning of this renewable energy facility, BioTown Biogas and the State of Indiana are claiming our position on the leading edge of a new era in clean energy production. Indiana is eager to see and support more of this type of investment in the state.”
