The University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, and Agra Energy are operating Wisconsin’s first commercial facility to turn manure into fuel for trucks and jets.
The project started six years ago when Agra Energy searched for waste streams to turn into fuel and that went into existing infrastructure such as tanks, pumps and engines.
The California based company refines biogases produced by landfills, food waste or manure from Wisconsin farms into fuel, said Tony Long, Agra Energy’s president and chief technology officer. Its technology converts hydrogen and carbon monoxide into a chain of hydrocarbon molecules.
Ken Notes: I am a huge fan of biogas, I just want to know about cost and scalability. We have tech that works now, is cost effective, can treat the effluent (a huge issue) and is scalable. Lets move this forward while we look at more advanced technologies.
