Renewable Dairy Fuels Kicks off Construction of Indiana Biogas Facility
by Betsy Lillian (NGT News) Renewable Dairy Fuels (RDF), a business unit of AMP Americas, has announced that construction has begun on what the company calls the U.S.’ biggest on-farm anaerobic-digester-to-vehicle-fuel operation.
Located in Fair Oaks, Ind., the dairy project will be the company’s second biogas facility producing renewable natural gas (RNG) from dairy waste for transportation fuel.
The new facility, expected to be operational this summer, will be 50% larger than RDF’s operation at Fair Oaks Farms in northwest Indiana. Amp Americas received the first dairy waste-to-vehicle fuel pathway certified by California’s Air Resources Board (CARB) for Fair Oaks Farms. The project was also awarded a Carbon Intensity score of 254.94 gCO2e/MJ, the lowest ever issued by CARB, Amp Americas says.
Every day, three digesters located at three dairy farms will convert 950 tons of dairy waste from 16,000 head of milking cows into 100% renewable transportation fuel. The RNG will then be injected into the NIPSCO pipeline. READ MORE
