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.
FIRST IN FLORIDA
WASTE TO NEW PRODUCTS
“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
Brightmark developed this project and will operate it once construction is complete in 2021. Partners include Larson Dairy, Inc. and JM Larson, Inc.
