The Demeter Project

The Demeter renewable natural gas (RNG) anaerobic digestion project in Madison, Wisconsin, converts 90,000 gallons per day of dairy waste from three area farms into renewable natural gas each year. The digester upgrades were completed in June 2020.

As a participating farm, we are excited to have Brightmark as a partner in the anaerobic digestion of the manure from our cows. This agreement will help local farms continue to be environmentally friendly to our community and help us to stay in compliance with environmental regulations. We have always taken pride in being excellent stewards of land conservation and ensuring our land is a safe environment for our neighbors.

WASTE TO NEW PRODUCTS

Clean Fuel Partners provides operations and maintenance support for the digester. The project was also developed in close coordination with Dane County, Wisconsin. The renewable natural gas collected from the anaerobic digester is transported to the county’s landfill gas processing facility and injected directly into an interstate pipeline.
