Sept. 29, 2016 – Ag-Grid Energy LLC, based in Kennett Square, PA, working with RCM Digesters, located in Berkeley, CA, has selected the Anaerobic Digestion Lab Test Network (ADLTN) to perform a set of four lab tests on solid mushroom substrates (SMS) including biomethane potential (BMP) testing.

“We are exploring new ground performing this set of lab tests on SMS and were extremely diligent in our search for the right partners to team with. Angela McEliece with RCM Digesters, the staff at Team Biogas and the designated lab were very professional and easy to work with. The lab tests were performed to our exact specifications and the data provided in the final report was presented in a detailed and easy to understand format. This is a significant first step for our new company. We will certainly use them for future lab tests” says Rashi Akki, founder and CEO.
