Entsorga joins as BDO Zone strategic alliance partner

Entsorga technology will help de-risk and accelerate project development in BDO Zones

Ecostrat is pleased to announce that Chicago-based Entsorga Inc., and fellow member of the Integrated Biogas Alliance (IBA), has joined the BDO Zone Strategic Alliance – Technology Group.

BDO Zone Strategic Alliance partners include some of the leading companies in the bioenergy industry and Entsorga’s highly integrated and automated OFMSW/SSO to RNG and SRF platform solution will be a strong complement to the Strategic Alliance and its mission.

The BDO Zone Initiative delivers critical bioenergy technology and biomass feedstock knowledge to industry stakeholders, including sources to enable new, sustainable solutions, supply chains and offtake products” said Christopher Maloney, CEO of Entsorga Inc. “We look forward to collaborating with our industry colleagues on this important initiative to accelerate and de-risk project development and financing of our projects in communities that have significant potential but limited resources.”

American biomass provides an economic development engine with the potential to create 160,000 jobs and nearly $15 billion of economic benefit. The BDO Zone Initiative can help the U.S. realize this potential by supporting new market development for American bioenergy, advanced biofuels, biobased heat and power, bio-materials, and clean hydrogen.

Jordan Solomon, President of Ecostrat, states: “We are pleased to welcome Entsorga to the rapidly growing group of BDO Zone Alliance Partners. The addition of Entsorga to the BDO Zone Strategic Alliance will help de-risk bio-based plant development in BDO Zones and empower more BDO Zones communities to monetize and create new jobs from their BDO Zone Ratings.”

About The BDO Zone Initiative

The BDO Zone Initiative (bdozone.org) is an economic development platform that enables local communities to deploy powerful economic development tools – BDO Zone Ratings—to achieve the goal of driving, accelerating and catalyzing biobased investment and commercial project development in BDO Zone designated regions for new biofuel, renewable chemical, biogas and bioproduct plants.
BDO Zone ratings do this by carrying out credible technical evaluations on feedstock and infrastructure risk, and then enabling communities to effectively and easily signal and promote key feedstock and infrastructure “success” characteristics valued by biobased developers and investors around the world.

‘AA’ or ‘A’ rated BDO Zones identify the best areas for low-risk bioeconomy project development.
BDO Zone ratings enable distressed communities to add capacity to support deployment of innovative technology and infrastructure, and this drives regional economic development to areas where poverty has been persistent for generations, harnessing natural resources to support biobased manufacturing and renewable energy production.

BDO Zones have the ability to move the needle on job creation, decarbonization, and social justice.
By achieving the goal of 1,000 BDO Zones in four years across the US, this Initiative has the potential to create over 160,000 clean jobs, reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions by 2.59%, and provide $30,000,000/year into the local economy.

BDO Zone Strategic Alliance Partnership is divided into four groups: Capital Markets Partners, Project Partners, Technology Partners, and Supply Chain Partners.
