In December 2018, our project with Hawai‘i Gas became the first in the state to capture and process biogas from the City and County of Honolulu’s Honouliuli Wastewater Treatment Plant on O‘ahu. The renewable natural gas (RNG) generated from this site is equivalent to eliminating the need for nearly 15,000 barrels of oil and reducing greenhouse gases by the amount produced by 400 cars annually.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Our biogas upgrading project with Wasatch Resource Recovery (WRR) is turning food and organic waste into solutions! That’s why WRR and Morgan Bowerman was honored this month’s ZeroHunger Hero Award by Fox13 and Smith’s “for their zero-waste efforts and bringing the separating machine and anaerobic digestors to Utah.” Currently WRR is only accepting waste from local food producers and packagers, but their goal is to have a resident drop-off program within the year. You can read the article on Fox13 here. Congratulations, WRR and Bowerman!

PORTLAND, OR – This month marks the 13th anniversary since our CEO, Robert Lems, joined DMT. Lems is an expert in the field of biogas upgrading, gas desulfurization, and waste water treatment. His previous experience as R&D manager highlights his irrepressible passion for pioneering and market development, particularly for technologies that stimulate the circular economy. Lems believes in a clear and prosperous future and has made it his company’s mission. Since 2015, he has helped DMT establish a local office in Portland and 15 projects in North America. Congratulations, Robert!

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.”
