The AJ Bush Bioenergy Project was built and commissioned in 2011 and was acquired by ReNu Energy in 2015. ReNu Energy owns, operates and maintains the project and completed an upgrade of the generation equipment in early 2017. The installed nameplate capacity of the project is 1.1 MWe. The anaerobic digestion ponds at the AJ Bush rendering plant produce sufficient biogas for in excess of 3.4GWh pa of electricity production. The project also produces approximately 3,400 Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGC) per annum. ReNu Energy generates revenue through electricity sales and LGC sales.
In March 2018 ReNu Energy announced the signing of a term sheet with AJ Bush for the construction of a new covered anaerobic lagoon and upgrades to the existing biogas infrastructure and lagoons owned by AJ Bush.
