news item image
Brightmark RNG Holdings has announced five new anaerobic digestion dairy farm projects in western Michigan in the US, enabling it to expand renewable natural gas (RNG) production.
Brightmark RNG Holdings is a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, and Brightmark Fund Holdings, a subsidiary of Brightmark.
The Chevron-Brightmark renewable natural gas joint venture operates a nationwide system of RNG joint venture projects.
The Castor Project, which processes manure from one large digester, is Brightmark and Chevron’s second-largest RNG project.
Other Michigan projects in the joint venture include Meadow Rock, Red Arrow, Willow Point and SunRyz.
Including these Michigan projects, the Chevron-Brightmark RNG joint venture has a total of 20 RNG projects across the country.
The net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the manure processed at the anaerobic digestion dairy farm projects in Michigan is equivalent to planting over 179,000 acres of forest each year, according to the company.
Additionally, these projects are expected to reduce land application of raw manure and improve odour, water quality, and nutrient management practices at farms.
“We’re excited to work with our partner Chevron and farmers in Michigan to progress the development of our RNG projects, which are designed to drive both lower carbon intensity outcomes for organic waste and investments in local farmers and their surrounding communities supporting lower carbon solutions,” said Bob Powell, founder and chief executive officer of Brightmark LLC.
“We are growing our network of strategic relationships with farmers across the country in order to advance the reduction of the agricultural industry’s carbon intensity by seeking renewable fuels from new sources and considering circularity challenges at increasing scale.”
“Transitioning to a lower carbon future is dependent, in part, on ambitious innovations and pragmatic solutions,” said Andy Walz, president of Chevron Americas Products. “Launching these anaerobic digestion projects with Brightmark can help us develop new solutions for transportation, industry, and customers who rely on our products.”
