  • Long usable life and can be run reliably
  • Creates energy and generates environmental credits
  • Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
  • Requires other technologies for energy utilization
  • Requires other technologies for digestate handling

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

With multiple dairy based RNG projects and a compressed natural gas fueling stations across the Midwest U.S. Gain has shown a commitment to providing a value to the dairy community as a partner on projects and a point of sale for the products they can produce.   U.S. Gain is partner-owner is over thirteen financially successful dairy farm waste-to-energy project in the US and is a division of U.S. Venture Inc., a North American leader in the distribution of fuel and transportation products with over 1,800 employees nationally.  U.S. Gain has thus far purchased dairy farm anaerobic digester systems using DVO digesters and added gas clean-up equipment specifically designed for the RNG industry by Nacelle Solutions.   Because many of these systems had to be upgraded and the RNG gas clean-up equipment installed, there is not sufficient data at this time for U.S. Gain to receive an operational reliability score. This being said, the feedback from partnering dairies has been very positive.
