Campbell Soup Co. has announced a partnership with renewable energy company CH4 Biogas LLC to create a commercial biogas power plant. Campbell will direct waste generated from its soup, sauce and beverage production in Napoleon, Ohio, diverting 35% to 50% of its current waste away from Henry County landfills, according to CH4.

The biogas power plant, Napoleon Biogas, will be located on more than seven acres of land directly across the street from the Campbell site in Harrison Township. The anaerobic digester will process material from area food processors, waste recyclers and local dairy farms, generating methane gas that will be used to fuel turbines and produce energy for Campbell's existing beverage production.

According to CH4 - which designed, owns and will operate the site - the power generated for the beverage facility will replace about 25% of Campbell’s Napoleon facility’s annual electricity use. Under a 15-year power purchase and services agreement, Campbell will use 100% of the electricity generated at a flat cost. Construction is under way and slated for completion in mid-2013.
