by Tina Olivero
In a world increasingly attuned to the imperative of sustainability, Bioenergy Devco has emerged as a beacon of innovation and leadership. This global powerhouse in advanced anaerobic digester systems has been crowned the 2024 Energy Company of the Year at the prestigious Sustainability Delivery Awards, held in Boston. This accolade is a testament to Bioenergy Devco’s relentless dedication to advancing green energy solutions and paving the way for a sustainable future.
The Sustainability Delivery Awards, hosted by Environment Analyst, celebrate organizations that have made monumental strides in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) innovation and leadership. This year, Bioenergy Devco stood out among its peers, earning recognition for its groundbreaking efforts in the green energy sector. The awards honor those who have significantly contributed to the global mission of achieving climate and net-zero goals.
“We are honored and grateful to be recognized as 2024 Energy Company of the Year,” said Nick Thomas, CEO of Bioenergy Devco. “This award is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our team, the advanced anaerobic digestion technology that drives a circular economy, and our commitment to developing next-generation energy infrastructure. We are also fortunate to collaborate with exceptional partners like Baltimore Gas & Electric, who are leaders in embracing renewable energy in Maryland.”
Bioenergy Devco’s accolade is largely attributed to its pioneering organics recycling facility in Jessup, Maryland. This state-of-the-art Maryland Bioenergy Center, which recently garnered recognition from the 2024 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards, exemplifies the company’s leadership in sustainable business practices.
Operating at a full capacity of 120,000 tons per year, the Maryland Bioenergy Center leverages anaerobic digestion technology to transform food waste into renewable natural gas and nutrient-rich soil amendments. The facility’s output of over 300,000 MMBtu powers more than 7,000 homes annually, while its carbon dioxide abatement is equivalent to removing 19,000 gasoline cars from the roads each year. This facility not only addresses the pressing issue of food waste but also contributes significantly to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, highlighting its critical role in the fight against climate change.
The Maryland Bioenergy Center’s success is a testament to Bioenergy Devco’s holistic and solutions-driven approach to sustainability. By partnering with the food industry, municipalities, and waste haulers, the facility offers an innovative and cost-effective organic waste recycling solution. Food producers and processors benefit from reduced disposal costs and enhanced sustainability efforts, while state and local governments see support for zero-waste initiatives and the creation of local green jobs. This collaborative model fosters economic growth and sustainability, proving that environmental responsibility and economic prosperity can go hand in hand.
The judging panel for the Sustainability Delivery Awards comprised esteemed industry experts and analysts, led by Environment Analyst’s Managing Director Ross Griffiths. The panel included notable figures such as Lucy Bradbury, Global ESG Training & Development Lead at AECOM; Jordana Vasquez, Senior Manager, Climate Resilience & Equity at Resilient Cities Network; Edward Brauer, Senior Hydraulic Engineer at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; and Anjuliee Mittelman, PhD, Environmental Engineer at the US DoT Volpe Center. This diverse and knowledgeable panel underscores the credibility and prestige of the awards, further cementing Bioenergy Devco’s position as a leader in the sustainability sector.
Based in Annapolis, Maryland, Bioenergy Devco is a global leader in the design, engineering, construction, financing, and operation of advanced anaerobic digester systems. The company harnesses naturally occurring biological processes to provide scalable solutions that help communities and businesses transform their organic waste. Through its subsidiary, BTS Biogas Srl, Bioenergy Devco has built over 250 facilities and manages more than 150 organics recycling and clean energy generation facilities worldwide. These anaerobic digesters play a crucial role in mitigating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from organic waste.
In a time when the world urgently needs sustainable solutions, Bioenergy Devco’s achievements offer a blueprint for the future. The recognition as 2024 Energy Company of the Year is not just an award; it’s a call to action for the industry, a testament to what can be achieved with innovation, dedication, and a commitment to sustainability.
