Document Description
Franchise Application by BioEnergy Solutions within the County of Kern. The project is comprised of an approximately 10-mile pipeline to be placed in the right-of-way of County roads. The pipeline is proposed to transport biogas from several diaries generally located south of Lerdo Highway between the City of Shafter and Interstate 5. The dairies participating in the project incorporate an on-farm anaerobic dairy manure digester to capture and collect biogas. The collected biogas is then compressed into a BES pipeline that transports that gas to an offsite upgrade and injection facility.
