Campbell Soup Company And CH4 Biogas, L.L.C. Create Ohio’s First Commercial Biogas Power Plant

Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) today announced a partnership with CH4 Biogas L.L.C. (CH4), to create Ohio’s first commercial biogas power plant to generate renewable electricity. Campbell will direct waste generated from its soup, sauce and beverage production in Napoleon, Ohio, diverting 35 to 50 percent of its current waste away from Henry County landfills.

The anaerobic digester will process material from area food processors, waste recyclers and local dairy farms, generating methane gas which will be used to fuel turbines that will produce energy for Campbell’s existing beverage production and offsetting fossil fuel use. The power generated for the beverage facility will replace about 25 percent of Campbell’s Napoleon facility’s annual electricity use. A 15-year power purchase and services agreement will allow Campbell to use 100 percent of the electricity generated at a flat cost.

“This new biogas technology will improve Campbell’s Napoleon recycling rate to approximately 95 percent, reaching the company’s 2020 destination goal for the site early,” said Dave Stangis, Campbell’s Vice President of Public Affairs and Corporate Responsibility, Campbell Soup Company. “The use of biogas energy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of electricity in this facility by approximately 16,000 metric tons per year, or the equivalent of 3,000 cars.”

The biogas power plant, Napoleon Biogas, will be located on more than seven acres of land directly across the street from the Campbell site in Harrison Township. CH4 designed, owns and operates the site, acting as stewards of the land, protecting the watershed, and recycling and processing the organic waste in an environmentally sustainable way. Other area industry and farming operations will also be able to leverage the facility, as the digester is designed to handle approximately 450 tons of mixed waste organic material a day, leaving 60 percent available capacity.

“CH4 is proud to partner with Campbell to bring Ohio its first commercial biogas based renewable energy facility,” said Lauren Toretta, Vice President CH4. “The conversion of waste to energy brings broad reaching benefits to the region and is a progressive step towards sustainable renewable energy solutions.”
