SAN ANTONIO – Synthica Energy LLC is advancing plans to build a nearly $70 million renewable natural gas facility.
Synthica, which designs, builds, owns, and operates large-scale, contracted anaerobic digestion facilities, has purchased a $2.5 million property on the city’s east side.
Over the next several months, the company plans to invest nearly $70 million in turning that site into a facility that diverts pre-consumer food and industrial organic waste from landfills, converting it into renewable natural gas.
Once up and running, the facility will have the capacity to produce 260 million cubic feet of RNG, which is enough to power thousands of homes.
Synthica expects to break ground on the facility sometime in the second quarter of 2024 with completion in early 2025.
