Farms to Fuel project will demonstrate technology to produce alternative renewable energy by combining cattle manure with organic industrial waste products in an anaerobic digester. The digester produces methane gas which fires an engine set to generate base load electricity. This would create environmental benefits by turning crop, livestock, and industrial waste into renewable energy in a sustainable and profitable way. Other benefits of the project include the production of a fertilizer that is more readily applicable to crops than in its raw form.
