Vanguard Renewables: A Farm-Driven Circular Solution

Nov 30, 2023

Nov 30, 2023 9:55 AM ET Your browser does not support the video tag. Vanguard Renewables partners with leading food and beverage companies to recycle food and beverage waste on multi-generational dairy farms across the country to make renewable energy via anaerobic digestion. Vanguard has a long-standing partnership with Barstow's Longview Farm, a seventh-generation family farm and member-owner of the Cabot Creamery Cooperative, to host one of Vanguard's Farm Powered® anaerobic digesters. Barstow's Longview Farm sends their milk to Cabot Creamery Cooperative to be turned into delicious Cabot butter, and the inedible waste produced as a byproduct of that butter manufacturing is sent back to the anaerobic digester on the farm to become renewable energy and low-carbon farm fertilizer. The Cabot Creamery Cooperative closes this circular loop by purchasing the renewable energy that their waste creates to power the butter plant and help decarbonize their operations. This project churns up a host of benefits for the farm, the community, the cooperative, and the planet. About Vanguard Renewables Vanguard Renewables, based in Weston, Massachusetts, is a national leader in developing food and dairy waste-to-renewable energy projects. The Company owns and operates on-farm anaerobic digester facilities in the northeast and currently operates manure-only digesters in the south and west for Dominion Energy. Vanguard Renewables plans to expand nationwide to more than 150 anaerobic digestion facilities by 2026. Vanguard Renewables is committed to advancing decarbonization by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from farms and food waste, generating renewable energy, and supporting regenerative agriculture on partner farms via Farm Powered® anaerobic digestion.

Renewable Oil International

Renewable Oil International is a Florence, AL based company that has received a grant(s) from the Department of Energy's SBIR/STTR program. The abstract(s) for these grant award(s) are provided as well since they provide insights into Renewable Oil International's business and areas of expertise. The project will produce liquid biofuels from wood biomass resources by fast pyrolysis followed by upgrading of the pyrolysis oils. This research will be a key step towards ending global warming, improving national security, and improving rural economies by reducing our dependence on petroleum feedstocks. Declining petroleum resources, combined with increased demand for petroleum by emerging economies, as well as political and environmental concerns about fossil fuels, are causing our society to search for new sources of liquid fuels. This project will develop a method for conversion of biomass into liquid fuels at a small scale called fast pyrolysis—a process whereby biomass is rapidly converted into a liquid biocrude which can be used for fuel oil or upgraded into gasoline and diesel fuels.

Citrine Renewable Energy

Citrine Renewable Energy (CRE) develops systems that cost effectively convert the biogas generated by landfills, waste water treatment plants, and other sources of biological waste into high value natural gas, which can be used to power natural gas vehicles. In addition to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from landfills and sewage works, CRE's systems enable vehicles that use the fuel it produces to reduce harmful NOx emissions by 50 and particulate matter emissions by more than 70. Truck and bus fleets powered by fuel produced by CRE can also benefit from fuel cost savings as compared to the cost of operating diesel engines.
