Syracuse Circularity Center

About the project

The Syracuse Circularity Center is located in Western New York and the Finger Lakes region. The three farms, Gardeau Crest Farms, Lawnhurst Farms, and Willet Dairy, will provide Brightmark with dairy manure from their herds, serving as feedstock for the three existing anaerobic digesters on the farms. The digesters will capture, extract, and clean the methane in the manure, convert it into RNG, and inject it into a nearby gas pipeline for distribution. Now fully operational, the digesters produce renewable natural gas between the three dairy farms. The circularity center is part of the recently announced joint venture Brightmark RNG Holdings LLC, a Brightmark platform in partnership with Chevron U.S.A. Inc.

Project benefits

Lowering CO2 Emissions icon


Annually, this project reduces an average of over 55,000 tons of CO2eq. That is equivalent to more than 72,000 acres of forest per year.
Renewable circularity icon


When fully operational, the center will produce renewable energy annually.
Renewable Natural Gas icon


These digesters will produce renewable natural gas annually between the three dairy farms.

“We are proud to partner with Brightmark to further reduce our environmental impact and to ensure that we continue to be good neighbors to our local community with the odor management benefits our anaerobic digester provides. This partnership allows us to convert our manure waste into a valuable resource, while also improving odor control and reducing our emissions – a win-win-win for our farm, our community, and the environment.”
