Pipeline quality green gas produced
Intrepid Technology and Re-sources, Inc., a renewable
alternate energy company, announced that they have successfully
processed biogas generated from dairy manure into commercial pipeline
quality natural gas.
Results from American Mobil Research Inc. in Casper,
Wyoming has confirmed that the gas produced from Intrepid’s
newly installed gas conditioning equipment at their prototype demonstration
facility located at the Whitesides Dairy north of Rupert, Idaho,
meets the heating value requirement for direct injection into a
commercial pipeline distribution system.
The gas contains acceptably low levels of sulphur
and the Methane purity content obtained by Intrepid is 99.7% which
is equivalent to 1008 BTU’s per cubic foot of gas, exceeding
Dr. Dennis Keiser, CEO of Intrepid stated, “With
this critical milestone achieved, we are now ready to proceed with
delivery of our first commercial load of green gas to Intermountain
Gas Company and begin building regional biogas fields in earnest.
Having established the fact that animal waste can be converted into
a clean burning, pipeline transportable, and renewable energy source,
we intend to start developing the first renewable large scale gas
field in the world and we start on that project today.”
