TotalEnergies & Clean Energy | November 30, 2021
Through their joint venture, TotalEnergies (Paris:TTE) (LSE:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and its U.S. partner Clean Energy are launching the construction of their first biomethane production unit, in Friona, Texas. The biomethane will be used as an alternative fuel for mobility, thus contributing to decarbonize road transportation.
Located on the Del Rio Dairy farm, the facility will be fueled by the onsite supply of livestock manure to produce more than 40 GWh of biomethane per year. The biomethane will be distributed in the United States by Clean Energy through its network of fueling stations, enabling the supply of renewable gas to between 200 and 300 trucks per year.
By processing cow manure, a significant source of methane emissions, and substituting fossil fuels with renewable energies, the project will avoid some 45,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions per year1.
We are pleased to consolidate our entry into the U.S. biomethane market by jointly developing this first production unit on the Del Rio Dairy farm, through our joint venture with Clean Energy,This project marks another step in TotalEnergies' transformation into a multi-energy company, and in the implementation of its ambition to be a major player in renewables.Laurent Wolffsheim, Senior Vice President Green Gases & Growth at TotalEnergies.
“This project at Del Rio Dairy helps to address the increasing demand for RNG by fleets and is a great example of our partnership with TotalEnergies, one of the world’s leading and most sustainably-minded energy companies,RNG, one of the cleanest fuels on the planet, manages greenhouse gas emissions and tackles global warming. The added RNG production from Del Rio will help us meet our target to provide this 100% negative carbon emissions fuel at all of our North American stations by 2025.”
-Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO, Clean Energy
Through the acquisition of an interest in Clean Energy in May 2018, TotalEnergies became the largest shareholder of the U.S. leader in natural gas vehicle fuels, with a stake of some 19% today. In March 2021, the two partners set up a 50/50 joint venture to speed up the development of biomethane production in the United States.
TotalEnergies and Biomethane
Biomethane is a renewable gas that has a key role to play in the energy transition. TotalEnergies is the segment leader in France, with close to 500 GWh of production capacity, and aims to become a major player in biomethane internationally by partnering with market leaders in other geographies, such as Clean Energy in the United States and Adani in India. The Company is active across the entire biomethane value chain, from project development to marketing of biomethane and its by-products (biofertilizers, bioCO2). It aims to produce 2 TWh of biomethane per year by 2025 – equivalent to the average annual consumption of 670,000 U.S. consumers, and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 400,000 tonnes.

WalkOn Plans | July 29, 2021
WalkOn Plans introduces new and innovative technology to the building industry by allowing people engaged in the construction process to walk around the project before it starts. This technology is being introduced to Canada for the first time by the company.
WalkOn Plans brings blueprints to life by projecting them inside their facility, allowing customers to see each room in their architectural design at a real 1:1 scale. This one-of-a-kind experience minimizes the probability of costly post-construction modifications and provides more control to both commercial and residential projects.
"Toward the end of 2019, I was speaking with a couple of individuals who were building a house. They were having difficulty choosing which designs to choose from their designer," explains Andrew Vanderwoerd, Principal and Founder of WalkOn Plans. "They were making this big choice based on a set of PDF plans, basically putting all of their faith in someone else to make their dream home a reality. "I told myself, 'there has to be a better way!'"
WalkOn Plans caters to everyone engaged in the building process, from families to architects to builders, to guarantee that everyone is a part of the experience from drawing to completion.
WalkOn Plans is now accepting new customers who want to envision their building ideas before they begin construction completely.
About WalkOn Plans
A building project, whether commercial or residential, is a significant financial investment. You want to be certain that the final product will be in keeping with the architectural designs. Consider walking through your project before it starts to be built.
