The Crossroads renewable natural gas (RNG) project in Wayland, Michigan includes building a new anaerobic digester on Crossroads Farms in Allegan County. The 3,200 cows that live on this farm produce a total of 36.5 million gallons of manure each year. After the project is complete, the methane generated by this manure will be captured, cleaned, and converted into RNG, which can be used for transportation, cooking, or electricity. Bridgewater is part of the third tranche of projects developed under the Brightmark RNG Holdings LLC joint venture with Chevron U.S.A. Inc.

Crossroads Dairy

“Crossroads is the next farm in a long line of Den Dulk family’s anaerobic digestion project in partnership with Brightmark and Chevron, which is really a testament to the value we’re looking forward to from the first project in Ravenna. This technology is great for meeting our sustainability goals while providing an additional revenue stream for the farm.”
Ryan Steendam, Crossroads Farm Manager
