Braley Promotes Importance of Farm Bill and RFS to Iowa with Sen. Stabenow PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Agribusiness
Written by Sam Lau   
Tuesday, 19 August 2014 15:55
Braley joined by Stabenow, chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee, at events in Des Moines, Boone and Springville

Des Moines, IA – Today Bruce Braley highlighted the importance of the bipartisan Farm Bill and a strong Renewable Fuel Standard to Iowa’s economy at events in central and eastern Iowa with U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Braley and Stabenow visited FEC Solutions in Des Moines, the Iowa State University BioCentury Research Farm in Boone, and the Linn Co-Op Oil Co. Elevator in Springville.

“When it comes to protecting Iowa agriculture jobs, there's a clear choice in the race for US Senate," Braley said. "I worked across the party divide for three years to help pass a bipartisan Farm Bill, and I've fought to protect the job-creating Renewable Fuel Standard from the EPA's proposed cuts. State Sen. Ernst, on the other hand, stands with the Big Oil interests backing her campaign against the Farm Bill and is 'philosophically opposed' to the job-creating RFS. I grew up in rural Iowa, worked in ag jobs growing up, and will always work to put the 75,000 Iowans whose jobs depend on renewable energy first."

Bruce has a strong record of promoting Iowa agriculture and fighting to grow Iowa’s rural economy. He worked for three years across party lines to pass the bipartisan Farm Bill that is critical to Iowa jobs and Iowa’s farming communities.

He has also fought staunchly to protect the RFS; according to the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, nearly 75,000 Iowa jobs are connected to renewable fuels. Late last year, Braley was the only member of the Iowa U.S. House delegation to join Governor Terry Branstad at an EPA hearing where they spoke out against the EPA's proposed cuts. In November 2013, Braley teamed up with Republican Rep. Steve King to host an event with Iowa State’s Bioeconomy Institute to explain to Congressional staff the importance of keeping the RFS at its current levels. At Braley’s request, Iowa consistently has had representation at Congressional hearings examining the future of the RFS. And early this year, he helped deliver 100,000 signatures to the EPA urging them to maintain a strong RFS.

In contrast, State Sen. Ernst would put Tea Party obstructionism before Iowa: Ernst would have opposed the Farm Bill, is “philosophically opposed” to the RFS, and her spokesperson said that “in a perfect world…she would support doing away with the (RFS).”

 
Construction Underway on Innovative Project Creating Energy from Hog Manure PDF Print E-mail

Roeslein Alternative Energy Collaborates with Smithfield Foods, Murphy Brown Missouri on Largest Biogas Project of its Kind; Significant Environmental Benefits Expected

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction is underway in Northern Missouri on an innovative $80 million renewable energy project, developed and constructed by Roeslein Alternative Energy, LLC (RAE) in collaboration with Murphy-Brown of Missouri, LLC (MBM) the livestock production subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, Inc.

Crews are installing impermeable covers on 88 existing lagoons to harvest biogas, also called renewable natural gas (RNG), from MBM hog finishing farms using best in class anaerobic digestion technology developed and installed by RAE. The project is the largest of its kind, utilizing manure from one of the biggest concentrations of finishing hogs in the Midwest to create several hundred million cubic feet of RNG annually for regional distribution.

The project is a unique and innovative model for sustainability that will demonstrate how underutilized agricultural resources can create renewable fuel, benefit the ecosystem and generate economic opportunity.

"We are excited to see the results of our collaboration with Smithfield and Murphy-Brown begin to take shape. This project can be a model to show how both economic and environmental benefits can be gained by using manure in a different way," said Rudi Roeslein, president of Roeslein Alternative Energy and CEO of Roeslein & Associates, a global leader in systems integration specializing in sophisticated modular construction.

Anaerobic Digestion Creates a New Energy Source from Manure

Impermeable synthetic covers will be placed on existing nutrient treatment lagoons where barn scraper technology will deliver raw nutrients of livestock manure to covered lagoons. The covers turn the lagoons into anaerobic digesters, where naturally occurring microorganisms decompose the manure in an oxygen free environment. Biogas rises to the top where it will be collected and cleaned of impurities. What remains is more than 98 percent methane with approximately the same chemical composition as natural gas that can be used for vehicle fuel or injected into the natural gas grid system. The undigesteable solid residue can be used by local farmers as a natural fertilizer and the water can be safely used for irrigation.

"This project fits perfectly with our mission to not only to be responsible environmental stewards, but create a direct benefit to the community by helping create a product such as natural gas – a renewable, clean-burning fuel," said Bill Homann, director of administration for Murphy Brown Missouri. "Partnering with experts like Roeslein help us make projects like these a reality."

"There is value in the gas we capture as alternative vehicle fuel. There is even more value to the environment from reduced greenhouse gas emissions, eliminating rainfall effects on treatment systems, and odor reduction," Roeslein said.

Lagoon Covers Enable RNG Production in 2014

RAE retained Industrial & Environmental Concepts Inc. (IEC) to design and install the High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) lagoon covers with the initial 21 being installed at MBM Valley View and South Meadows farms in Northern Missouri by fall 2014.  RNG production is expected to begin in late 2014.

RAE has engaged investment banking firm Stern Brothers & Co. to underwrite the entire financing for this project. Much of the equipment and process modules will be fabricated by local fabrication companies and Roeslein & Associates wholly owned subsidiary Roeslein Fabrication in Red Bud, Illinois.

In addition to using hog manure, RAE ultimately intends to produce RNG from cover crops harvested between growing seasons on prime agriculture land and grasses harvested from highly erodible farm ground converted to native grasslands. The concept creates an economic structure that better utilizes land assets, delivers significant environmental benefits, reduces soil erosion, benefits wildlife and improves water quality.

About Roeslein Alternative Energy, LLC
Roeslein Alternative Energy, http://www.roesleinae.com, provides integrated large-scale solutions to develop clean, low-cost renewable energy sourced from waste products and grassland biomass.
