By PR Newswire
May 6, 2013, Walnut, CA - VIASAPCE Inc. and Renew Energy of Svendborg, Denmark presented a paper entitled "Giant King Grass to Biogas" at the International Biomass Conference held in Minneapolis Minnesota in April, the largest biomass event in North America.
Renew Energy is a Danish engineering services company specializing in biogas plants and bio refineries integrated with ethanol plants, distilleries and other industrial plants. Morten Jacobsen of Renew Energy made a presentation, which can be found at https://vimeo.com/63390267. Renew Energy is providing engineering support for the Tibbar Energy 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant project on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, which will be fueled by Giant King Grass. The presentation describes the overall biogas system and uses the St. Croix, Tibbar Energy/VIASPACE project as an example. Renew Energy and VIASPACE are now working together to develop and support biogas projects fueled by Giant King Grass.
VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, commented: "Our relationship with Renew Energy and the Tibbar Energy 7MW anaerobic digestion power plant fueled by our proprietary Giant King Grass on St. Croix are gaining global attention and we are grateful to Mr. Jacobsen for the excellent presentation that he recently made at the International Biomass Conference and Expo in Minneapolis. The Giant King Grass fueled power plant on St. Croix will be a superb, renewable, green energy model that can be replicated on any tropical island to provide electricity 24 hours per day. We are excited to be leading the way in that significant and important market segment."
