Dynamic Energy is excited to work with Lallemand to convert their plant from oil to natural gas. Their investment in energy efficiency will pay dividends for years.

Michael Perillo, CEO


Dynamic Energy was retained to engineer, interconnect and construct a new natural gas main for Lallemand Inc.’s food processing plant located in Baltimore, Maryland. The facility’s boilers historically ran on a combination of bio-gas and #2 fuel oil.

Dynamic Energy worked with Lallemand’s subsidiary American Yeast to identify the efficiencies gained in converting the plant from oil to natural gas.  Working closely with Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE), Dynamic Energy engineered and received interconnection approval for connection into the natural gas main.

Dynamic Energy’s team of professional engineers designed a complete plant conversion that included new natural gas pipe runs, boiler trains and a flare pilot light.  Natural gas was also installed to supply backup fuel for the site’s Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plant.  The savings realized from running both the boilers and CHP plant on natural gas resulted in a one (1) year simple payback on the project and greatly improved reliability across the Maryland facility.
