Form and Build

Multiple products – University of Guelph – Ridgetown Campus

Project: Anaerobic Digester – Biogas Plant – University of Guelph
Location: Ridgetown, Ontario
Architect/Engineer: PlanET Biogas Solutions


PlanET Biogas Solutions began construction on a new power plant at the Ridgetown Campus of the University of Guelph. The construction began in late September 2010 and is targeted to be producing gas by February 2011. The plant was designed and built by PlanET Biogas Solutions acting as the design-build contractor. The plant will soon be turning manure and other organic wastes into enough electricity to power approximately 300 homes.

The plant will feature one anaerobic digester, one dry feeder system, one pasteurization unit and a biogas engine to turn the biogas into electricity. The plant will produce biogas from several organic waste streams: dairy manure, swine manure, beef manure, corn silage and other off-farm wastes that would trypically go to a landfill.
