This marks the joint venture’s inaugural RNG project in the state and builds on the joint venture’s extensive network of projects across the U.S. to produce dairy RNG for lower carbon intensity transportation fuel.
The Larson Project captures methane from cow manure through the process of anaerobic digestion and converts it to renewable natural gas. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG), the second most abundant GHG, and is responsible for roughly 17.3 percent of global emissions.
The produced RNG is used as transportation fuel and the remaining solids are transformed into organ
