Document Description
The project will fund the installation of a skid-mounted, modular, pilot demonstrate plant on an existing dairy farm that will convert dairy waste to renewable diesel for use by onsite vehicles. The project includes pouring a 25'x50' site pad with canopy for housing the pilot plant, extending a gas utility from an onsite source to power the facility, and storing the diesel in existing tanks. The project is associated with minor air emissions and water discharges that would be an improvement on the emissions currently associated wtih the dairy. The project benefits the Scotts Brothers Dairy Farm and the public by demonstrating the cost-effectiveness and feasibility of alternative and renewable vehicle technology, thereby reducing reliance on petroleum fuels and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including those from dairy waste.
