December 31, 2019 |

In New Mexico, QC Sun Online is reporting that Tucumcari Bio-Energy said it will start construction in February on its $8.0 million project to convert a former ethanol plant into a cellulosic biogas producer. Tucumcari Bio-Energy President Robert Hockaday said that the project will create 40 jobs, will convert local cattle waste to methane and then to renewable natural gas, and added that  $8 million for the project had been obtained from the state of New Mexico and from USDA-guaranteed bank loans, and that the project was seeking an additional $2.5 million from local investors, funds that will be used to lower the carbon intensity score of the fuels by adding solar power generation and greenhouses to utilize left-over CO2 from the process.
