Ontario-based anaerobic digestion (AD) technology developer Anaergia Inc (TSE:ANRG) announced on Monday it plans to build a 1.2-MW biogas plant in Okayama prefecture, Japan.
The plant will be constructed in Kasaoka city for domestic company Toyo Energy Solution Co Ltd. It will produce renewable electricity through biogas made by anaerobically digesting cow manure from local farms.
According to Anaergia, the biogas facility will be capable of digesting some 250 tonnes of cow manure per day, fueling a combined heat and power (CHP) generator system. The output will be enough to power around 2,200 homes annually.
Anaergia will be in charge of the design, engineering, installation and commissioning of the plant, while Toyo will act as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.
This is the second time the two parties are working together on a biogas project following a 1.4-MW installation in Yabu city, Hyogo prefecture.
