RNG Project Updates

Iowa RNG feedstock expansion

Green Impact Partners has secured an additional dairy for the Iowa RNG Project, bringing the total number of dairies to three. Construction is anticipated to start in late 2022, with RNG production commencing in late 2023 or early 2024. Capital costs are expected to be approximately $100 million, and the Company anticipates up to 60 percent in debt financing. With the addition of the third dairy, Iowa RNG is expected to generate approximately 350,000 MMBtu per year of RNG and a projected run-rate EBITDA of approximately $20 million.

 

Future Energy Park

Located within the City of Calgary, Future Energy Park is a proposed net CO2 negative biofuels facility using non-food grade wheat to produce RNG and ethanol. Future Energy Park represents an over $1.2 billion capital investment with over $300 million in annual EBITDA. The Company anticipates up to 75 percent in project level debt financing.

Currently in the later stages of permitting, GIP is also in the process of finalizing all material agreements, including engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC), offtake and supply contracts. Recent updates to project design now include over 400,000 metric tons of annual captured CO2 and high-quality protein distillers grain as a revenue stream.

Subject to receipt of regulatory approvals and the close of financing, construction is anticipated to start in early 2023. Once operational, the facility is expected to produce over 3.5 million MMBtu per year of RNG, over 300 million liters of ethanol annually, approximately 235,000 metric tons of high-quality protein distillers grain, capture 400,000 metric tons of clean CO2 and create carbon credits.

 

GreenGas Colorado gearing up for commissioning

Located in Weld County, Colorado, GreenGas Colorado continues to be on time and on budget. GIP expects commissioning to start in late Summer 2022 with first gas production anticipated before year end. Once operational, the facility is expected to produce more than 360,000 MMBtu per year of RNG and a projected run-rate EBITDA of approximately $25 million.
