CLP has helped many clients sell, purchase, build, finance and develop biogas facilities, perhaps more than any other law firm. Our clients are involved with biogas digester projects and next-generation biofuels, and feedstocks such as cellulosic ethanol and algae. We have experience at all stages of the bioenergy project life cycle: concept, financing, development,  and operations.   We also work with investors and developers looking to build capacity by acquiring assets and companies through the consolidation of ethanol, biodiesel and other clean fuels industries.
