11 Oct Calgren Wins Award for Biofuel Partnership
Lyle Schlyer and the team at Calgren Dairy Fuels in Pixley, CA are partnering with local fuel and dairy industries to lower the carbon footprint of both. Via underground piping, Calgren will send biogas from dairy waste to the site of its existing 55MMgy ethanol plant. The facility also comprises a 5 MMgy biodiesel facility, 11 MW of biogas-based electricity production, and a carbon capture and liquefaction operation.
