CARES Facilities

Our main renewable energy infrastructure consists of a 600 000 L per year biodiesel plant and a 250 kW anaerobic digester for biogas production. These pieces are integrated in order to complete closed-loop energy production. For example, excess heat from biogas operations is used to process waste vegetable oil and unrecoverable waste from biodiesel production is used as a feedstock for the anaerobic digester. We also use conventional and modified farm machinery to plant and harvest bioenergy crops such as Miscanthus, switchgrass and Camelina.
