P&G ‘largest single renewable project’, Albany biomass plant should be operational ‘in next few days’

A renewable energy biomass congeneration facility, built as part of a public private partnership right next door to Procter & Gamble’s Albany plant is said to be almost ready to start producing energy for its customers, according to a report published by the Albany Herald.

The plant is contracted to sell steam to Procter & Gamble for a 20-year period and should be fully operational by mid-summer.

“P&G has a long-term goal to be 100 percent renewable across all of our manufacturing sites,” P&G Global Product Supply Systems Leader, James McCall told the Albany Herald. “In the short-term, we’ve made a commitment to be 30 percent renewable by 2020, which is significant because it’s both on our electrical and our thermal energy. Albany is P&G’s single-largest renewable energy project globally.”

Together with a wind partnership the company has launched in Texas, the Albany project will double P&G’s use of renewable energy, taking the total to 20 percent as it comes online this summer.
