Idaho alternative fuel plant expands operations
Expansion enables production of renewable green gas

Idaho Falls, ID— Intrepid Technology and Resources, Inc. (ITR), a renewable energy company, announced that it has ordered an additional eight digester tanks and has begun the excavation work to accom- modate the five-fold expansion of their operating Whitesides Biogas Production Plant near Rupert, Idaho.

This expansion will take Intrepid’s annualized gas production to as high as 95,000 mcf annually, a quantity sufficient to heat 1,000 homes in the Boise, Idaho area.

The first phase of the expanded construction activity includes the preparation of the pad that will support the gas conditioning equipment that will transform the existing biogas being produced by the facility to saleable “pipeline quality” natural gas.

This production will make Intrepid the nation’s first alternative fuels company to produce renewable green gas available to commercial and residential users and will pave the way for Intrepid to begin installing biogas fields around the country.

The gas conditioning equipment is scheduled for delivery in the latter half of May. Intrepid expects to deliver their first commercial shipment of gas for direct injection into the local gas utility pipeline distribution system the first week of July.
