Wisconsin-based BioMass Solution LLC has announced the start of construction for the Red River BioRefinery in North Dakota, which will convert organic waste into biofuel.
Located in Grand Forks, the facility is expected to begin commercial operations in early 2020. It will convert over 500,000 tons per year of agricultural waste into advanced biofuels, which will be sold in the transportation fuels marketplace.
“BioMass Solution has developed a scalable platform that focuses on distributed infrastructure solutions to help its customers manage and monetize their waste streams,” says Keshav Rajpal, principal at BioMass Solution. “Our focus is to bring together complete project financing, proven technologies, experienced implementation and operating partners to successfully deploy solutions while minimizing risk.”
Jacek Chmielewski, principal at BioMass Solution, adds, “The marketplace is excited about using proven technologies with successful track records to monetize organic waste streams. The design of the Red River BioRefinery allows for operating flexibility while maximizing end-product value for our customers. This makes the facility an attractive and replicable model for agricultural and organic waste management.”
