anessa’s Summer Fun!
Get-Together to Celebrate Our Progress and Enjoy the End of Summer
The Team got to enjoy one of the last Summer Fridays together. While it was too rainy to have our original plan, a hike at the beautiful Dunbar Falls, the Team made the best of the situation and opted to have a game day in the office. A fierce game of Codenames was held, with both teams ending up getting a win… the grudge match will be held at a later date to decide who the true champion is.
After a few hours of board games, the Team visited a local Brewery, Picaroons, where we were able to unwind after work and enjoy New Brunswick-brewed beer and great company.
Keep an Eye on Our AD•A Platform Updates!
anessa AD•A users can now get a breakdown of their biogas’ composition in the technical results when using the Elemental Analysis as their BMP input module. Users can now see the quantity and percentage of methane and carbon dioxide in their biogas, while also determining the maximum potential quantity of hydrogen sulfide.
Why is biogas composition important?
Many regions now require air quality reporting and GHG reporting; by including this section, users are able to get the quality of the biogas including the quantity of CO2 and H2S in the biogas. This can be used to help determine the amount of filtration they might need from the maximum amount of hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide is toxic and heavily regulated.
Feedstock Database Additions:
The anessa Feedstock Database has been updated to now include 250 feedstocks. Recent additions include feedstocks such as:
- Buffalo manure
- Goat manure
- Sheep manure
- And more!

Inflation Reduction Act
Inflation Reduction Act Passes in the United States
The US Congress, House of Representatives, and President Joe Biden have all signed and passed the Inflation Reduction Act, a historic commitment to advancing clean energy. The legislation will provide extensive support to Methane reduction technologies like AD, and support the Rural Energy for America Program with an additional $1.965 billion.
EEG Criticized by German Stakeholders
Pushing to Expand EEG Biogas Support
Biogas Stakeholders in Germany are dismayed at the lack of biogas incentives in the new EEG Amendment from July. In the midst of Natural Gas supply chain issues, the Bundestag failed to expand RNG policy to support domestic energy, causing the Bioenergy and German Farmers’ associations to criticize the government’s decisions around clean energy.

Take a Dive Into Our Client Use-Case
Leyline Renewable Capital Uses AD•A in Colorado
Validate Your Project Before Investing Time and Money
The Leyline Renewable Capital Team was considering an investment into a potential Colorado-based Dairy RNG project. The project seemed very promising, but Leyline was receiving conflicting project data from the developer and constructor which caused them to seek a platform to validate the data and understand the true potential of the project.
anessa AD•A was chosen to assess the project’s parameters and was able to prevent an overestimation of 53,000,000 ft3 of biogas per year. The overestimation was able to save Leyline an estimation of $2,000,000 USD in annual revenue miscalculation.
“Being able to do Sensitivity Analysis, analyze Greenhouse Gas emissions, and other features we weren’t previously considering, such as digester sizing, and volume of effluent coming from the digester we have been very grateful for.”
