BANA PACIFIC LLC, founded in 2016, is a developer of Biogas production facilities. Each facility is owned by a Single Purpose Entity that converts biomass crops (organic material), including agricultural and industrial wastes, into 2nd Generation Biofuels producing Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) and organic soil amendments.

Our Mission

The BANA PACIFIC mission is to promote local Biogas production and utilize the abundant available Biomass, as a required feedstock, to bolster local agricultural and farming economies. Doing so facilitates the local production of renewable fuels, enabling energy sustainability, environmental stewardship, and independence from fossil sources.

Our Vision

For cultural, economic, and environmental purposes, the vision of BANA PACIFIC is to have Hawaii and other South Pacific Island nations benefit greatly from the waste mitigation and natural byproducts produced by our HSAD/OMR AD Biogas facilities. The rapid development of renewable energy utilizing Biomass from existing agricultural land resources and industrial wastes will accelerate the path to reviving the local agricultural economy while producing sustainable energy locally and reducing Hawaii's dependence on fossil fuels. BANA PACIFIC is committed to leading the way.


To achieve this Vision, BANA PACIFIC has adopted four primary objectives.

  1. Promote biofuel sustainability and alternative utilization of fallow ag land resources.

  2. Initiate the development of an agricultural economy in feedstock.

  3. Help develop and implement policies that will increase the production of renewable energy utilizing the existing biomass resources that are locally abundant.

  4. Foster and demonstrate stakeholder unity and support of renewable energy and energy sustainability through education and community involvement.
