Verliant Energy Partners Announces Exclusive Strategic Alliance with Achor Anaerobic for Revolutionary Anaerobic Digestion
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Verliant Energy Partners (“VEP”), a leading developer of bioenergy power projects for utilities and large energy users, announces that it has signed an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement with Achor Anaerobic LLC (“Achor”), a provider of innovative AD technology.
Under the agreement, VEP will use Achor’s unique “achorlytic” enzyme and digestion-inoculating technology to significantly enhance the productivity of anaerobic digestion in its projects in the US.
Achor’s technology uses enzymes to significantly increase the biogas production from digestible materials, including animal and food wastes as used by VEP at its facilities. Achor and VEP are together designing production facilities of the Achor technology at several sites in California.
