REV LNG, SJI start work on RNG facilities in Michigan

US liquefied natural gas supplier REV LNG and compatriot energy services firm SJI have started building four renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities in Michigan.

Last week, the partners broke ground on RNG facilities at four Michigan-based dairy farms, namely Double Eagle, Roto-Z, Goma and Z-Star, according to a joint statement.

The projects will include constructing 2M gallon anaerobic digesters and related RNG facilities to capture methane produced by cow manure.

Also, the projects include implementing equipment that cleans the digester-produced biogas, transforming it into commercial-grade pipeline-quality renewable natural gas, the statement said.

REV LNG has led early-stage development for SJI and will preside over the construction of the RNG facilities, expected to be operational by late 2022.

Together, the four sustainable, family-owned farms would help to produce nearly 3M therms of RNG per year, they said.

To put this into perspective, 3M therms of RNG is enough to offset the negative environmental impact of 1.8M gallons of gasoline consumed per year within the US, according to the partners.

Furthermore, these projects fall on the heels of SJI and REV LNG’s recent announcement to begin construction on an RNG facility at Oakridge Dairy, Connecticut’s largest dairy farm.

REV LNG, along with partner Pivotal LNG, operates the Towanda liquefaction and storage facility, located in Pennsylvania.

Towanda produces about 50,000 gallons of LNG per day but it also has 180,000 gallons of storage.

REV in December trucked LNG from Towanda to Canada’s Hamilton Port for the first-ever LNG bunkering operation in the Great Lakes region.
