The Augean Project
About the project
The Augean Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) project in Yakima County, Washington, will convert 150,000 gallons per day at George DeRuyter & Sons Dairy into renewable natural gas each year. Brightmark’s investment in the Augean project enables DeRuyter to upgrade its 2007 manure collection system and digester to increase its capacity. A vital component of the project is the construction of a new gas pipeline infrastructure that sets the table for RNG projects for other dairies in the area.
