The American Biogas Council announced the eight fastest growing biogas businesses in the U.S. — DMT, DVO, Inc., Envitec Biogas, Evonik, Greenlane Biogas, Nacelle, Paques Environmental Technologies, and PlanET Biogas. Results were determined by gross revenue growth from 2019 to 2020. Collectively, revenue from the fastest eight grew by more than 300%. “At present, the U.S. biogas industry has 2,200 operating projects in all 50 states,” says Patrick Serfass, ABC’s executive director. “Because each year the U.S. generates millions of tons of manure, agricultural waste and food scraps, plus billions of gallons of wastewater daily, the potential to build new biogas systems to manage those large volumes of organic waste is enormous. At least 15,000 new systems could be built, catalyzing an estimated $45 billion in new capital deployment along with 374,000 short-term construction jobs to build the new systems and 25,000 permanent jobs to operate them.”
Paques Environmental Technologies, one of the top eight, has helped industries reduce their water and carbon footprints and reclaim valuable resources for over 30 years. Paques’ anaerobic wastewater treatment systems produce energy (biogas) from wastewater, while purifying the water and facilitating water reuse. The company has also developed the THIOPAQ® regenerative biogas scrubbers, with over 300 units sold to desulfurize biogas, as well as multiple wastewater treatment technologies.
