Raven SR Bioenergy Project

Project Description

The Raven SR Bioenergy Project (project) proposes to construct and operate a bioenergy system composed of the Raven SR multi-patented Steam/COReformation process at the project site. The non-combustion process would convert blended green waste and food waste, obtained from the existing BMPC operation adjacent to the project site, into renewable, transportation grade hydrogen that would be exported offsite for various renewable energy products. No long-term hydrogen storage would occur onsite. The project would involve the construction of a modular structure and industrial canopy.

City of Richmond has prepared a draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for environmental review of the following described project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) of 1970, as amended, and the City of Richmond’s Guidelines and Procedures for the  Implementation of CEQA.

Draft IS/MND Public Review Period Extended: October 7th, 2022 to November 22nd, 2022

Review and Comment Period: The public comment period for the IS/MND has been extended to November 22, 2022. Comments on the IS/MND shall be sent in writing and must be received by 5:00 p.m. on November 22, 2022, at the following address or email:
