Hydron Energy Announces Strategic Partnership
with Standard Nutrition Company
The investment will accelerate the commercialization of Hydron’s biogas-to-RNG upgrading technology for small- to medium-scale sites
NORTH VANCOUVER, BC and OMAHA, NE, December 13, 2022 — Hydron Energy Inc., the cleaner fuel company commercializing a revolutionary gas upgrading solution, today announced a strategic investment by Standard Nutrition Company (SNC), a leader in livestock nutrition and management consulting. This partnership and funding will extend our in-house manufacturing program and solidify Hydron’s focus on commercial opportunities for renewable natural gas (RNG).
“Hydron is proud to add Standard Nutrition to its growing list of partners,” said Hydron Energy President and CEO Soheil Khiavi.
“This investment further validates our success to date and enables us to pursue manufacturing advancements that will further improve the capital- and operating-cost savings we can extend to our clients. In addition, with growing proof in our system’s capability to deliver quicker returns on investment for project owners, we are well positioned to respond to the unique requirements of the small- and medium-scale projects.”
Hydron’s patented INTRUPTor™ system significantly reduces the cost of upgrading biogas to RNG and enables the deployment of small-scale plants aligned with feedstock availability. The INTRUPTor™, an acronym for Intensified Regenerative Upgrading Platform Technology, is a containerized module system scalable from 20 Nm3/hr to 2,000 Nm3/hr (12.5 SCFM to 1,250 SCFM) and delivers a best-in-class carbon intensity score.
“Farmers have a unique opportunity to put their manure and crop wastes to beneficial use as renewable natural gas,” said Eric Ohlendorf, President of Ag Property Solutions, a division of Standard Nutrition Company. “But with so many new technologies and unknowns, it’s a struggle for producers to understand all that’s involved.
“Companies like Hydron and the tools and resources they offer are what livestock producers need to help them capitalize on RNG opportunities.”
“Hydron offers a compelling value proposition regarding cost structure, and the cost is a big issue for our clients,” added Ohlendorf. “If we can fundamentally change that dynamic, we have a game changer in the market.”
Mr. Ohlendorf will join Hydron’s Board of Directors, adding his much-needed agricultural expertise and views along with his connections. SNC consists of five subsidiary companies providing focused support and products to some of the most successful dairy, swine, poultry producers, and horse owners.
