3 Rivers Energy Partners Selects BIOFerm as Technology Provider for Innovative Renewable Energy Plant near the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Lynchburg, TN – June 6, 2023 – 3 Rivers Energy Partners, a trailblazer in the renewable energy sector, has officially announced BIOFerm, a leading provider of anaerobic digestion and gas upgrading technology, as the EPC partner for a new, ground-breaking renewable natural gas (RNG) facility near the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
In a significant stride towards sustainability the new plant will transform spent stillage from the Jack Daniel Distillery, a byproduct of the whiskey distilling process, into renewable natural gas (RNG) and nutrient-rich natural fertilizer utilizing BIOFerm’s cutting-edge technology.
“This partnership embodies our commitment to a more sustainable future and our innovative approach towards achieving it,” said John Rivers, CEO of 3 Rivers Energy Partners.“We are excited to have BIOFerm on board. Their extensive expertise and advanced technologies will ensure the project’s success.”
BIOFerm’s sophisticated anaerobic digestion process uses microorganisms to break down the stillage, producing biogas which is then refined into RNG via a gas upgrading plant. Not only does this process generate a source of renewable energy, but it also creates a natural commercial fertilizer, thereby completing the nutrient life cycle of the corn used to make whiskey.
The wider benefits of this project are manifold. The resultant fertilizer has the potential to support up to 43,000 acres of farmland, primarily in Tennessee’s Moore, Coffee, and Franklin counties. Over 400 small family farms stand to benefit economically from the use of the discounted natural fertilizer, providing approximately $7 million annually in regional economic benefit via cost savings.
“Our goal is to help our partners and their communities realize the full potential of their resources,” said Nadeem Afghan, CEO of BIOFerm.“This initiative with 3 Rivers Energy Partners and the Jack Daniel Distillery epitomizes that mission.”
Construction of the new plant is due to commence later this year.
