Article originally published on Progressive Dairy.

DTE Biomass Energy, a subsidiary of DTE Energy, in collaboration with local dairy farmers, recently commissioned three additional dairy-based renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities in Wisconsin. Joining DTE’s four Wisconsin operating RNG assets are facilities co-located at the Rosendale Dairy and New Chester Dairy owned by Milk Source, and Kinnard Farms, owned by the Kinnard Family…

Biogas from cow manure at these three dairy farms is collected and processed into pipeline-quality natural gas. This RNG is then trucked from the farms to a DTE RNG terminal located in Newton, Wisconsin, where it is injected into a nearby natural gas transmission line for ultimate use in compressed natural gas vehicles.
