CONCORD, Massachusetts , October 14, 2022 (press release) –

10-year deal worth approximately $175 million will support bp’s efforts to curb harmful greenhouse gas emissions and boost access to clean energy for its customers

Divert, Inc., an impact technology company on a mission to Protect the Value of Food™, today announced a 10-year renewable natural gas (RNG) offtake agreement with bp (NYSE: BP) worth approximately $175 million. Under the new agreement, bp expects to purchase RNG generated from three Divert facilities in development in California, Pennsylvania, and Washington, which would offset 36,905 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year (1). The agreement marks one of the largest known RNG offtake agreements from food waste digestion in the U.S. bp provides heat, light, and mobility to customers all over the world, with an ambition to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner.

“The climate crisis is accelerating and the need to find alternate solutions and independent energy resources to decarbonize has never been more critical,” said Ryan Begin, CEO and co-founder, Divert. “Divert is building a revolutionary platform for sustainable change, utilizing transformative technology solutions to improve food efficiencies across industries. This long-term agreement with bp ensures that Divert will continue to lead the wasted food revolution.”

The bp agreement comes during a period of rapid growth for Divert as the market embraces new ways to address wasted food and decarbonized energy. Divert is uniquely positioned to address these changing tides as the largest anaerobic digester of wasted food in the U.S., and is already delivering on its mission to drive social and environmental impact through its advanced technologies and sustainable infrastructure. The company processes more than 232,000 tons of wasted food a year at 10 facilities across the country.
