January 22, 2021. The Integrated Biogas Alliance (IBA), in concert with EIP Ventures, is in final stage development of a 7 dairy, 16,500 head biogas project. The project is expected to close in late Q1 2021.
“We are excited to announce our first dairy biogas project” stated Christopher Maloney, President of the IBA. “This is a culmination of over two years of terrific development work by the Boise Biogas Group, led by IBA Partner and lead project manager Digester Doc. The project is located on approximately 50 acres near Boise Idaho and ideally situated near a natural gas pipeline. This project is the first phase of a much larger biogas facility planned for the site and will generate over 1,200 MMBtu of renewable natural gas per day. When completed, this project is expected to create more than 300 direct and indirect jobs during the construction phase, and the facility will ultimately employ 15 full-time staff on-site with an additional 40 jobs associated with hauling and off-site processing. The project will bring together the technologies, equipment and related consulting, engineering, and construction services of many of the IBA companies.”
“This project has cleared all major permits and approvals and has strong local and State support said BBG spokesman and Digester Doc President, Will Charlton. ”We are excited to advance this project in collaboration with Chris, Tom, Beverly and the IBA team. The project will be a strong addition to the renewable energy capacity coming from the Idaho dairy community”.
EIP Ventures out of New York will be leading the final phase of development for the IBA ensuring completion. “This project will remove the equivalent of 260 gallons of diesel per hour derived pollution from the atmosphere and will prevent the emissions of approximately 2.2 million gallons of diesel annually, which is equivalent to planting a 36,000-acre forest – every year. EIP Ventures is excited to collaborate with the IBA to ensure the project’s success” stated Beverly Westle, Managing Director of EIP Ventures.
