GESS International, a highly experienced and globally established renewable energy company, previously announced plans to construct four green energy biogas plants across Missouri in March 2019. Among the Missouri developments there will now be an additional facility built in Chariton County, Missouri.
The new $40 million investment will create 21 new jobs for the surrounding community. On an annual basis, this Biogas facility will convert 140,000 tons of cattle and swine manure and 70,000 tons of agricultural residues into 550,000 MMbtu worth of renewable natural gas (RNG). This output is enough to power 6,800 homes for one year, while reducing methane emissions and any potential environmental impacts from local farm operations.
