Intrepid Technology and Resources, Inc, a renewable alternate energy company, has successfully processed biogas generated from dairy manure into commercial pipeline quality natural gas. This is said to be a major breakthrough by Intrepid as they believe that the company is the first commercial firm in the United States to achieve such results on a privately-funded basis.
Results from American Mobil Research Inc in Casper, Wyoming, a widely used and respected natural gas analysis lab, have confirmed that the gas produced from Intrepid’s newly installed gas conditioning equipment at its prototype demonstration facility located at the Whitesides Dairy north of Rupert, Idaho, meets the heating value requirement for direct injection into a commercial pipeline distribution system. The gas contains acceptably low levels of sulphur and the methane purity content obtained by Intrepid is 99.7 percent which is equivalent to 1,008 BTU’s per cubic foot of gas, exceeding expectations.
The company is appreciative of the close cooperation and collaboration it received from its technology partners and equipment suppliers, said Jake Dustin, president of Intrepid. “That is particularly true of the Andigen/Utah State University team who developed the proprietary Induced Blanket Reactor digester technology that we selected as our demonstration platform.”
