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.
The Demeter PRoject
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.

Project Benefits

GHG Reductions
The facility will offset greenhouse gas emissions each year.
Resource Recovery
Recovering and processing manure from the farms will prevent excess nitrogen and phosphorus from escaping into local air and water, reducing phosphorus runoff alone by 60%.
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, injected directly into an interstate pipeline.
