The announcement was made last night at a ceremony in Boston.

"We are honored and grateful to be recognized as 2024 Energy Company of the Year by the Sustainability Delivery Awards," said Nick Thomas, CEO of Bioenergy Devco. "It is gratifying to receive an award recognizing the efforts and dedication of our team, our advanced anaerobic digestion technology that contributes to a circular economy, and our commitment to developing the next generation of energy infrastructure. We are also fortunate to collaborate with exceptional partners like Baltimore Gas & Electric, who are progressive leaders in embracing renewable energy in the state of Maryland.”

Bioenergy Devco was named Energy Company of the Year for its pioneering organics recycling facility in Jessup, Maryland. This accolade follows the company’s recent recognition by the 2024 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards, honoring Bioenergy Devco’s leadership, innovation and commitment to sustainable business practices.

The groundbreaking Maryland Bioenergy Center, operating at its full capacity of 120,000 tons per year, utilizes anaerobic digestion to convert food waste into renewable natural gas and nutrient-rich soil amendment. The facility generates over 300,000 MMBtu to power over 7,000 homes and abates CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 19,000 gasoline cars annually.

By offering an innovative and cost-effective organic waste recycling solution, the facility partners with food producers and processors to enhance sustainability, reduce disposal costs and meet corporate responsibility goals.
