Raleigh, NC — TUESDAY 10/16, at their 18th annual BIOCYCLE REFOR18, the American Biogas Council (ABC) announced DMT, the technology supplier for a Renewable Dairy Fuels (RDF) project, with AMP Americas as the winner of the “Innovation of the Year” award.
The Biogas Industry Awards was a sold-out dinner celebration, presenting 33 awards to biogas projects across the industry, including Projects of the Year, Longevity Awards, Hospitality Awards, and one Innovation of the Year Award. Winners across the agricultural, municipal and merchant sectors were recognized for their contributions to the growth of the U.S. biogas industry.
“Our awards this year recognize projects that are great examples for future projects— a great new tool for finding nutrient recovery technologies and a champion for the biogas industry,” remarked, ABC Executive Director, Patrick Serfass. “We are so proud to be awarding these shining stars of the industry.”
The AMP Americas project with DMT was bestowed the distinction of the ABC 2018 Innovation of the Year Award for combining two technologies for biogas upgrading, which work well independently, to create an order of magnitude improvement in overall efficiency and cost.
“AMP Americas is well known for using the best available technology on the market to make their projects successful,” said DMT Clear Gas Solutions’ CEO, Robert Lems. “We are glad to be their technology provider for the RDF project in Jasper county and are happy that the project is recognized for its value to the industry.”
Large in scope, the project is a leading example of sustainable farming and a future model for other projects in North America. There are more than 2,200 operational biogas systems in the U.S. today with the potential for over 13,500 new systems to be built.
“We are proud to be recognized for our contributions in improving air quality, sustainability and farm profitability,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO at Amp Americas. “Jasper is now the country’s largest dairy RNG project, but there is still tremendous opportunity out there to convert dairy waste into 100 percent renewable transportation fuel. We look forward to working on more innovative projects with DMT.”
