Montauk Ag Renewables, a subsidiary of Montauk Renewables Inc., will open a renewable energy plant in Sampson County, North Carolina. The project is expected to create 70 jobs over the next five years.
The company will locate off Highway 24 in the former Bay Valley Foods Distribution Center in Turkey, with a facility named Turkey Creek Ag, LLC, according to Sampson County Economic Development.
“We are very excited to be working to open a facility in Sampson County and believe it’s a great place for our business to take the next step in our development,” said Montauk Ag Renewables’ President, Joe Carroll. “We look forward to working with the County, and the great people living there, to offer quality, stable jobs, while working to positively impact the environment.”
The company’s anticipated products and services offerings include swine waste removal, lagoon maintenance, and spray field cover crop management. Montauk expects to use the facility to enable them to seek to enact a plan of conversion of animal agriculture-waste to Renewable Natural Gas, and, with a goal of reformulating renewable energy residuals into other potential organic, pathogen-free, soil supplements and chemical fertilizer alternative renewable energy products.
“Montauk Ag Renewables aligns well with our growing renewable energy cluster across Southeast, North Carolina. We look forward to supporting Sampson County’s continued economic development successes and promoting our 18-county region as a place of choice to do business,” added Steve Yost, President of NC’s Southeast.
