The Larson Project

About the project

The Larson renewable natural gas (RNG) project includes the construction of new anaerobic digesters at four Larson family dairy farms in Okeechobee County, Florida. Two of the farms are owned by Larson Dairy, Inc. and two owned by JM Larson, Inc. After the project is complete, the digesters are anticipated to generate renewable natural gas each year. The gas will be delivered into the local, interstate gas pipeline system. The project is part of the recently announced joint venture Brightmark RNG Holdings LLC, a Brightmark platform in partnership with Chevron U.S.A. Inc.

WASTE TO NEW PRODUCTS

The facility will generate renewable gas every year.

We're unwasting waste. How renewable natural gas is made.

Renewable natural gas (RNG) is natural gas produced from organic waste like food waste and animal plant-based materials. The significant sources of RNG are landfills, animal manure, and solid waste extracted during wastewater treatment.

The gas is considered “renewable” because it is created by continuously produced waste and is naturally occurring as part of the decomposition process. Anaerobic digestion technology captures raw biogas, cleans, upgrades, and compresses it into RNG.

SEE HOW IT WORKS

“Brightmark has been a good partner in the development of this project. We are glad technology and economics are coming together to support our environmental and sustainability goals. Cows are the ultimate recyclers, creating wholesome milk from byproducts of the citrus, ethanol, brewing, and textile industries. This technology now also allows us to convert manure to energy and improve the environment.”

– Woody Larson, Participating Farmer
