Chesapeake Utilities Corporation announced a new partnership with ABC member CleanBay Renewables Inc., an enviro-tech company focused on the production of sustainable renewable natural gas. The partnership will generate greenhouse gas credits associated with vehicular usage, and provide Chesapeake Utilities the opportunity to bring additional renewable natural gas to its Delmarva operations. Under the arrangement, Chesapeake Utilities Corporation will transport the renewable natural gas produced at CleanBay’s planned Westover, Maryland bio-refinery, to Chesapeake Utilities’ natural gas infrastructure in the Delmarva region. The clean energy produced at each facility will reduce 550,000 tons annually of greenhouse gas emission equivalents (equal to removing 107,795 gasoline-fueled vehicles off the road)” said Donal Buckley, CleanBay’s Chief Executive Officer. The Westover facility is scaled to be large enough to process meaningful quantities of poultry litter and will include more than $200 million of capital investment by CleanBay. Site preparation is underway, and construction is scheduled to begin later this year. More>>
