Video Tour of the Forest County Potawatomi Community Biogas System (7 min)

One of Wisconsin's signature industries -- food and beverage processing -- now has a cutting-edge flavor in a new renewable energy project. The project converts food wastes into renewable energy, with the power sold to We Energies. The developer of the $20 million project: the Forest County Potawatomi. The digester produces 2 MW of electricity -- enough to supply about 1,500 homes.)

Bull---- Market | America is overlooking a plentiful renewable resource: animal manure.
(Slate) The U.S. is belatedly making great strides on becoming more energy-efficient and carbon-friendly. Huge new solar and wind farms dot the countryside. Car companies are making revolutionary investments in efficiency. We're relying less on coal to create power. Landfill operators are capturing the methane released from decomposing trash to generate electricity. But there's one plentiful, renewable resource that America is overlooking: animal manure. More>>

A California facility has become one of the world's first carbon-neutral wastewater treatment plants.
How's this for greening the desert: Officials in the California community of Victor Valley on Friday unveiled the United States' first carbon-neutral wastewater treatment plant (with ABC Member Anaergia). Biogas produced from food waste and sewage powers the plant while keeping tons of garbage out of landfills. Officials at the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority expect the system to More>>

(Wow) EPA: 3.5 million cellulosic biogas RINs generated in August
The U.S. EPA has published renewable identification number (RIN) data for August, reporting that nearly 3.5 million cellulosic RINs were generated during the month. More than 1.64 million were generated for renewable compressed natural gas (biogas), along with 1.85 million for renewable liquefied natural gas. So far this year, all 3.57 million D3 RINs have been generated by domestic producers. More>>

From Biogas to Bioresources – why ADBA widened its remit (UK)
ADBA has announced that it is changing its name from the Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Association, to the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (the UK's biogas trade association). This is in response to a rapidly changing political and economic landscape. Central to this decision is the recognition that... More>>

The U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard: It's Not Just for Ethanol Anymore (National Geographic)
The debate surrounding ethanol and federally mandated targets for its production tends to dominate the conversation about the United States' Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). But the Environmental Protection Agency recently issued a tweak to the RFS that also deserves attention. The agency said that electricity generated from biogas counts toward compliance with the RFS, a change that stands to have significant implications for electric vehicle drivers, the utilities that supply those drivers with power, and -- especially here in Vermont -- dairy farmers.

MassDEP's New Commercial Organics Waste Ban Webpage
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has established a new web page to support roll-out of the commercial organics waste disposal ban that will take effect on October 1, 2014. This page gathers together existing content from multiple MassDEP web pages and from the RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts (RecyclingWorks) program to provide a single central location for finding all relevant information on the commercial organics waste disposal ban. MassDEP and RecyclingWorks will be continuing to add content over the coming weeks, which will be made available via links on this page. More>>

ABC Workshop @ BioCycle East 2014: Developing New Classification System For Digestate And Digestate-Derived Products
Markets for value-added products from digestate are growing. And so is the need for a new classification system to provide guidance on how these products can and should be used. Join the American Biogas Council and partners for the first U.S. workshop aimed at two main goals: 1. To ensure that digestate and digestate-derived product is no longer de-facto considered a waste stream 2. To create a classification system on permissible end uses for digestate and digestate-derived product based on the combination of stability, feedstock origin and the lack of nonpermissible materials.

Waste-to-Energy Roadmapping Workshop (Hosted by USDOE's BETO Office)
The Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) at the Department of Energy aims to identify and address key technical barriers to the commercial deployment of liquid transportation fuels from waste feedstocks. As a part of this effort, BETO is organizing a Waste-to-Energy Roadmapping workshop. Workshop participants will join facilitated breakout sessions to discuss anaerobic digestion, hydrothermal liquefaction, and other processes that make productive use of wastewater residuals, biosolids, foodstuffs, and organic municipal solid waste. These discussions will be synthesized and used in developing a waste-to-energy technology roadmap. More>>
