VERBIO North America launches farm services arm to support RNG production

December 8, 2020 |

In Michigan, VERBIO North America Corp (VNA) announced the formation of VERBIO Farm Services LLC (VFS) as the company progresses towards the successful startup of its Renewable Natural Gas production facility located in Nevada, Iowa. The facility has been under construction since early 2019, following VNA’s late 2018 purchase of the former DuPont cellulosic ethanol plant.

With the recent construction completion of 8 large fermentation tanks, plant operations are expected to commence operations early in the 3rd quarter 2021 (fermentation tanks photo, attached). The plant utilizes sophisticated anerobic digestion technology to convert cellulosic agricultural residue into RNG. The location in central Iowa is ideally suited to providing the approximately 75–100,000 tons of corn stover, annually, to produce 7 million ethanol equivalent gallons of RNG once the first phase of the site’s redevelopment is complete.
