Turning Waste into Biofuel
Good for the Local Farmers
We offer local farmers the opportunity to reduce costs and increase revenue. For grain farmers, we offer an additional revenue stream by paying them for their residue after the grain harvest. Dairy farmers can generate revenue by selling manure, and reduce costs associated with manure management and environmental compliance.

Good for the Environment
Our innovative approach reduces both emissions AND pollution. We divert dairy manure from lagoons that otherwise would produce methane off-gasses; remove crop residue that might otherwise be burned or produce CO2 from decomposition; and replace fossil-based diesel with low-carbon, renewable natural gas as a biofuel for CNG fleets. Additionally, a biproduct of anaerobic digestion is an organic fertilizer that can replace the use of synthetic, petroleum-based fertilizers in the region.
Anaerobic digestion is a biological process where organic matter is broken down by microorganisms creating two main products (biogas and digestate). The biogas can then be conditioned into renewable natural gas as well as other fuel types used for heat and transportation. Digestate can be used for fertilizer, livestock bedding or organic compost.
