Xebec (XBC) has agreed to manufacture BGX Biostream units for a leading U.S. renewable natural gas dairy farm developer.

Starting at a list price of US$1.5 million, Xebec’s Biostream solution generates renewable natural gas from biogas, which comes from municipal landfills, wastewater treatment plants and anaerobic digesters processing agricultural and industrial organic waste.

The master service agreement supports the order of an initial 18 units with the potential for additional orders under the same agreement. This is Xebec’s largest Biostream order to date and the largest ever awarded in North America for dairy farm biogas upgrading projects.

As a result of the agreement and additional expected orders, Xebec has started production on 30 Biostream units for delivery over the next year.

According to the American Biogas Council, approximately 8,574 dairy, poultry and swine farms are primed for biogas and renewable natural gas production. 

As of May 2021, there are 333 operational and under-construction digester projects that accept livestock manure, according to the EPA AgSTAR project database. Approximately 82 per cent of the projects are at dairy farms. Of the 333 projects, approximately 98 of them are producing renewable natural gas for the local CNG transportation market or for injection into the local pipeline.

Renewable natural gas from dairy manure has a negative carbon intensity score of -100 to -400, according to the California Air Resources Board, compared to 102 and 34 to 75 for diesel and corn ethanol, respectively.

Kurt Sorschak, Chairman, CEO and President of Xebec Adsorption, commented, 

“This is a fantastic validation of our new Biostream product that is focused on animal manure feedstocks. The team has worked hard over the last two years to develop this containerized system which offers many benefits to customers, such as short delivery times, fast installation, modularity, ability to automatically handle fluctuating flow rates, low operating costs and equally important, a very competitive price.

This MSA shows the strong value proposition developers and farmers see in our products, as they accelerate the development of carbon-negative renewable natural gas production. We are proud to be playing such an important role in this energy transition and look forward to ramping up our production capacity.”

Xebec Adsorption is a global provider of clean energy solutions for renewable and low carbon gases used in energy, mobility and industrial applications.

Xebec (XBC) is up by 3.62 per cent and is currently trading at $4.29 per share as of 10:26 am ET.
