R-Qubed Energy, Inc. (with entech Biogas USA) – Complete Mix

Company Description:

R-Qubed Energy, Inc. (R-Qubed standing for “responsible, renewable, resources”) is a New Mexico corporation founded to develop markets for anaerobic digesters in the United States.

R-Qubed will be the owner/operator of the biogas plant in Dona Ana County, New Mexico, that will use animal waste from dairy cow herds and convert that animal waste through the anaerobic digestion process to produce renewable resources in the form of methane gas, CO2, liquid fertilizer, and compost. In addition a water treatment facility will treat excess waste water for re-use in dairy and irrigation applications. R-Qubed’s facilities will represent a total solution for environmental concerns of large feeding operations, virtually eliminating challenges caused by animal waste and waste water.

Technology Description:

The Dona Ana Biogas Project will be built in 4 quadrants. Upon completion, the 4 quadrants will produce enough methane to meet the energy needs of about 4,000 households.
