Anaergia Inc. announced that its subsidiary SoCal Biomethane will officially commission operations at the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority facility in Victorville, California. The facility is the first wastewater treatment plant in California to inject renewable natural gas made from both wastewater solids and food waste into a utility pipeline. The Anaergia subsidiary upgraded VVRWA's existing wastewater treatment plant, retrofitting existing anaerobic digesters with Anaergia's high-throughput and high-efficiency OmnivoreTM technology and Anaergia's biogas conditioning and upgrading technology package that produces pipeline-quality renewable natural gas. The additional technologies allow the facility to not only process wastewater, but also take in food waste collected by the region's waste haulers, preventing methane emissions from these sources and creating renewable, carbon-negative fuel to replace fossil natural gas. The facility will be capable of producing and injecting up to 320,000 MMBTU of RNG into the region's gas utility pipeline each year. The new plant will assist local municipalities in complying with California's Senate Bill 1383 regulations, which require every municipality to divert residents' and businesses' food and other organic waste from landfills, with the goal of reducing the amount of organic waste landfilled by 75% by 2025. Anaergia delivered this project as a public-private-partnership building this infrastructure with financing partners North Sky Capital and Live Oak Bank, construction partner W.M. Lyles, and gas utility partner Southwest Gas. The P3 enabled the project to be delivered in record time and enhance VVWRA's wastewater infrastructure with greater capacity and resiliency.
