The project will involve anaerobic digestion of dairy manure at Spruce Haven Farm and will produce approximately 6 MMBTU per hour of pipeline quality renewable natural gas (RNG). The biogas produced by the digester will be upgraded to pipeline quality, then injected into an NYSEG gas pipeline adjacent to Spruce Haven Farm. RNG projects reduce waste and long-term greenhouse gas emissions, while also increasing the use of renewable energy. CEDA provided technical assistance to Global Common with their CCIDA loan application. This project is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022.
