Construction of the plant has begun. The facility will recycle more than 90 thousand tons of chicken litter annually. It will produce and transport renewable natural gas, crystalize and transfer phosphorous for farmers in the Midwest, and provide the remaining digestate as soil amendment to area farmers.
In addition, the facility will also generate 2.5 MW of electricity that will be used to power the facility. Any additional electricity generated will be transferred onto the grid through net metering.
