WHO WE ARE
Big Ox Energy is a team of dedicated and trained professionals focused on offering solutions to our food production industry customers. Our mission is to be a sustainable, scalable, and cost-competitive waste recycling provider.
Currently, food industry byproducts are not being handled cost-effectively or in an environmentally friendly way. Big Ox Energy converts industrial food and agricultural waste into clean-burning, pipeline-grade, renewable natural gas, known as “green gas.” Good for the economy, the environment, and the industries it supports, “green gas” is a renewable, domestic energy source.
Over 124,000,000 tons of organic waste goes into landfills every year.
Industrial scale food manufacuters landfill hundreds of tons of processing waste daily.
Grocery stores dispose of 3,000 pounds of produce per employee per year.
Restaurants throw away 40% of all prepared food.
Methane is the primary element in natural gas, which is used to heat homes and fuel automobiles. Commonly, the source of this fuel is fossil-based. Big Ox Energy’s process, based on proven commercial technologies, takes organic waste streams and essentially speeds up Mother Nature’s process to create methane. We capture the methane and sell it as a renewable fuel.
It’s really as simple as this diagram shows:
Our proposed locations in the upper Midwest are in the center of America’s industrial-scale food manufacturing and processing. Meatpacking and processing plants, fruit and vegetable canning, cereal manufacturing, and breweries produce hundreds of tons of waste each day that create a disposal challenge. We solve that challenge!
The short answer: everyone benefits!
Natural gas produced by our facilities has a well-established commodity market, and it’s renewable, with specific demand and a limited supply. Plus, produced bio-solids can be used as animal bedding or as a soil amendment. The Big Ox Energy management team has experience running a demonstration-scale facility as well as established relationships with industry leaders giving us a direct path to feedstock sources.
The Plant Superintendent works closely with the Plant Manager to assist with all aspects of process operation, gathers information, and covers for Lead Operators when time off is requested.
Big Ox Energy offers industry competitive pay, company paid life and disability insurance, excellent health/dental/vision insurance, Simple IRA Plan with company match, and paid vacation/holidays.
